Story Contest: Coming Together

Deadline for submissions: October 1, 2021

This year's Story Contest encourages Family Medicine Department members to share their stories, thoughts and experiences on the theme "Coming Together." Story telling is a powerful tool in healing. People yearn for stories, particularly stories of influence, hope, and community building. We can learn from and through authentic experiences, both of grief and joy. COVID-19 has shown us the interconnectivity of communities worldwide.

That space came to be defined on the floor plan (attached) as two rooms separated by an accordion wall, on the North side of the building. The construction, now underway, will see the expanded offices of Family Medicine completed in 2021.
