Stories of public health permeate our daily lives. As public health leaders, we are charged to see health in all its facets, synthesize what we see, and tell the stories of our communities and those we serve. It is through stories that we can best advocate for policy change to improve population health, secure grant money for our research and organizations, and communicate about the challenges and successes of our work with our friends, colleagues, and neighbors.

StoryCon 2016 brought together graduate student storytellers and their public health stories from across campus and universities. This event inspired to better craft and relay your stories in order to grow your professional career while helping the communities you serve.
