Story Health

Book being opened and pages fluttering


The Office of Humanities now collaborates with several partners to bring reading and writing initiatives to MUSC and the community.

We co-sponsor the Black History Month Lecture hosted by the Waring Historical Library Society, We help fund books for students who participate in the SGA Book Club.

We collaborate with Patient- and Family-Centered Care (PFCC) to teach workshops to patients and family members interesting in telling their healthcare stories. Many of these writers end up sharing their stories in educational settings, teaching our students the core concepts of PFCC.

We support the MUSC Septima P. Clark Student Poetry Contest hosted by the College of Health Professions and Student Programs/Student Diversity to engage school-aged children and young adults in writing health-themed poetry.

We provide online Story Health Modules for anyone at MUSC seeking to practice self-care through expressive writing.
