HHL Narrative Health Support Group
Sponsored by the FHI Health Humanities Lab, the HHL Narrative Health Support Group offers Duke students who are dealing with chronic health challenges the opportunity to take part in discussion, creative writing, and storytelling in order to maximize both education and health. By "chronic health challenge," we mean a health condition - from acne to ADD, endometriosis to depression, diabetes to cancer - that has changed your life and engaged you in a long-term trajectory of management. Facilitated by Duke medical students, meetings will include readings of texts on chronic illness, discussion and analysis of texts, and short writing prompts. This is the first time that this group is meeting this year. A meal will be provided.
