Health Rising: A Night of Storytelling
May 10, 2018 | 6:00pm | Bus Boys and Poets 5th & K
Join us for an evening of community storytelling. Storytelling is about sharing strength, struggle, culture, and power. The Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF) invites you to a night of storytelling. Thirteen Health Rising fellows will share a personal narrative that emerged from workshops on transformational leadership and Moth* inspired storytelling. Their stories will lift up personal narratives from the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) communities as a strategy to inspire action for health equity.
*The Moth approach is about every day people authentically telling a story from their lives in a live setting.
