Health and health case are infused with narratives and representations of the body, illness, and the work of healing and care. Representations may be personal, cultural, historical, visual, or performative. What current research investigates how storytelling, narration, and representation can be mobilized in the service of health, well-being, public health messaging, and doctor-patient communication? 

This event is part of a series of 5 public conversations between January – May, 2022 to identify potential curriculum and research clusters that will form part of the Community Health Hub of Concordia’s new School of Health.  

Participate in the discussion by registering for the Zoom meeting or watching live on our YouTube channel.
