Call for Interdisciplinary Storytellers – GHHS Night of Storytelling – Submission Deadline is March 4, 2022!

The UWSMPH’s Gold Humanism Honor Society would like to cordially invite you to “A Night of Storytelling”. This is an opportunity for interdisciplinary healthcare professionals, students, and trainees to share a personal experience around a theme of their choice during their time in healthcare. These stories can be personal or reflections on your role within the healthcare field. Upon submission, we will review the stories with an eye towards a clear theme and meeting the guidelines below – but don’t worry about perfection before submitting! We expect to work with you to refine your story after submission, and we are happy to do so.
