Harnessing The Healing Power of Stories

 

DONATE

SharingClinic is an audio listening kiosk that resides at the Massachusetts General Hospital Paul S. Russell Museum of Medical History and Innovation as an interactive exhibit. The listening kiosk houses an array of audio clips taken from interviews with patients, patient’s loved ones, and healthcare providers. Listeners select stories they want to hear by diagnosis and/or theme using a touch screen.

 

Mission: SharingClinic endeavors to empower and connect individuals facing health challenges, and to transform the culture of the hospital through storytelling.

 

Vision: Our goal is to expand the project and launch kiosks in other healthcare facilities and non-healthcare venues. A downloadable app is in production as well. Stay tuned!
