Harnessing The Healing Power of Stories


Our Audio Stories program involves a facilitated conversation between a Health Story Collaborative team member and a person navigating illness or facing a health challenge.


These conversations are recorded and last approximately one hour. We then edit the content to create a first-person narrative involving only the story sharer (listen to examples below).


Our goal is to work with participants to create a piece that feels authentic, meaningful and ultimately healing.


If you or someone you know might be interested in sharing, please contact us at: abrewster@healthstorycollaborative.org. We will then set up a short phone screening to see if seems like a good fit.
