We’re thrilled to offer two workshops in advance of this year’s What’s the Fix? Conference. In prep for the sessions, check out some supporting resources and materials below!
Lead with the story: How to capture hearts, change minds, and inspire action
Time: 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (CDT)
About the Workshop: Everyone has a story – yes even you! Your experience is the key to creating movement and change. Crafting compelling stories can enable people to escape their comfort zones and share a new perspective. This workshop led by Kijana Knight-Torres, Design Researcher at the Design Institute for Health will uncover what makes good stories tick and guide participants in the process of creating meaningful connections with others and helping listeners transition from “I know” to “I understand.”
Worksheets to be used during the workshop:
Resources and inspiration for storytelling:
- John Maeda – From Storytelling to Storylistening
- How to Talk so people listen
- How Storytelling Affects the Brain
- Humans of New York
Finding a fix: Strategies to empower patients and strengthen health care
Time: 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. (CDT)
About the Workshop: This workshop with the Society for Participatory Medicine will, fittingly, be led by a collaborative patient, doctor and nurse team: “e-Patient Dave” deBronkart, Dr. Danny Sands and Marge Benham-Hutchins. It explores how activated and empowered patients can engage as responsible drivers of their health, and how providers can encourage and collaborate with them as full partners in their health and care.
