Center Stories

At the Center for Community and Global Health, we believe that the intersection of science and story is a powerful place for healing. Here we bring together a selection of stories from the Center, the Lewis & Clark community, and beyond, that highlight the role that narrative can play in health and healing. 

These broader perspectives give us a greater appreciation for healing in many forms and the ways that health connects to each.
