Living History Project

Our Mission:

As a group, the Living History Project aims to elevate patients' life histories and stories in the hospital setting by interviewing patients about their lives and composing written life narratives that are shared with both the patients and their medical teams. By sharing patients' life histories, we aim to humanize and personalize patients' experiences of care at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Additionally, we seek to assist our members in developing their skills as writers and patient advocates through a series of workshops, writing events, and discussions with guest speakers on narrative medicine with the ultimate goal of enabling our volunteers to best improve the patient experience.
