Presented by Baylor College of Medicine Center for Medical Ethics & Health Policy’s Narrative Medicine Program in collaboration with Inprint

Do you want to amplify the voice of COVID-19 patients or do you have a story to tell?
Do you want to become a more imaginative, empathetic, and present caregiver?
Would you like to sharpen your interviewing skills by learning the art of radical listening?
Are you looking to unleash fresh thinking and help break down the wall between health providers and patients?

If you answered “Yes” to these questions, join a free 6 week reflective writing workshop presented in collaboration with Inprint and led by Houston writer Nick Almeida. Participants will write a narrative to be included in a podcast chronicling how our community provided care during COVID. No prior creative writing experience is needed.

This workshop takes place online via Zoom. Those that register will receive the Zoom login link details from info@inprinthoston.org a few days before the class begins.
