About narravitas

We are an online journal that seeks to understand the stories behind the faces of healthcare providers and those of their patients. As a creative project, we strive to celebrate the impact and significance of emotion in a field where it is too often forgotten. Through the works of our writers and editors, narravitas aims to marry the art of self-expression with healthcare.

Narravitas is a sub-organization of the Harvard Cancer Society, with the goal of giving a voice to the narratives of those affected by illness and those who care for them. The first issue was published in Spring 2017, both written and peer-reviewed by our board of editors. We hope our work is an impetus for patients, providers, and students to understand their humanity within the medical system. Thank you for visiting.
