At Health Stories Project, our mission is to help patients and caregivers share their personal health experiences and to learn from the experiences of others. That’s what why we keep adding and talking about new ways for people to share.
We work hard to bring you inspiring and educational stories because we believe that everyone has a story and every story can make a difference for someone.
Although while we enjoy meeting and interviewing people, one of our goals is to feature your words as much as possible. So, this month we thought we’d provide some story writing starters for those of you who are interested in sending your story to us.
