The Narrative is a section for personal narratives on community, kinship, and the connection that truly makes us well.

We believe that the truest sense of self and health comes through connecting with others, in sharing our stories, and finding comraderie rather than dangling purported keys to individual success. You will not find tabloid-esque titles here that only cater to the individual author on how they lost weight or overcame anxiety.

Instead, you will find often vulnerable stories on the intricacies of how broad aspects of our lives affect our health, from immigration to military service to parenthood. This is us . . .
