Keck Narrative Medicine Program and the Cancer Support Community Los Angeles Receive Grant from USC Arts in Action

Keck School of Medicine of USC News & Notes

As a method, field of study, and clinical practice, narrative medicine centers individual and community stories in the service of health and social justice. In the narrative medicine workshop, a work of art – a painting, a poem, film, music, or another form of creative expression – is used as a medium and vehicle for individual and collaborative interpretation, attentive listening, perspective-taking, and self-reflection.
