We aim to give Drexel students
a unique opportunity to step out of their comfort zones, engage with a sensitive population, and use their learned skills to make someone else’s day a bit better.
We believe deeply that experiences like these teach students profound lessons that simply can’t be taught in traditional classrooms.
INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING?
Story Medicine (WRIT 215) is powered by the warmth, enthusiasm, ingenuity and creativity of Drexel students. We welcome students from all plans of study. If you are a Drexel undergraduate interested in joining, register for course WRIT 215.
And Drexel students can be involved in Story Medicine without taking the class. A student graphic designer built our website, student musicians wrote and recorded our music, a student computer scientist is currently writing a program to turn our production scripts into TelePrompter scripts. Student animators turned patient stories into films. Can you apply your skills to our mission of bringing imagination programming to kids at CHOP? If so, come and find me. And if you are interested in other Community Based Learning courses, check out the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement. The Lindy Center supports Story Medicine and many other out-of-the box courses.
