Center for Health Progress Uses Storytelling to Connect

The Center for Health Progress believes the “only way to create an equitable health care system is to ensure that all voices are heard and considered in its design.” From their site: “Storytelling exists in many forms—novels or essays, one-on-one sharing, spoken word poetry, graphic art, video, audio, data visualizations, dance, and so on. They help us make emotional connections to our audience, moving them out of their head and connecting to their heart. It’s no secret that health care is complex—from how insurance functions to the historical and systemic injustices that plague our health care system. So, the way we talk about health care is important. If we want an audience to engage, then it’s important that we present the information in a compelling way that’s also easy to understand and use. Storytelling is key to ensuring we are elevating the issues and voices that need to be heard.” To read more about the power of storytelling, please see:  https://news.nnlm.gov/bhic/aqcy.
