Authors: Olivia Davies, Sehr Khan, Wendy Peltier, Cassie Ferguson, Martin Muntz

In-person book discussions are attended by only a fraction of the community due to distance, scheduling constraints, and competing commitments.

Social media may be powerful tools to augment connection and engagement to support a common goal or new initiative.

The Kern Institute is excited to partner with MCW medical students to present a live storytelling series inspired by The Moth. MCW students and faculty are invited to share first-hand narratives of their medical school journey without notes, scripts or props to a live audience.
