How can we heal from the wounds we don’t talk about? This year's Interprofessional Story Slam featured five-minute stories that helped us consider questions of repair and healing told by Jefferson students, faculty and staff. Members of the Jefferson community shared their stories of emotionally processing impactful experiences, challenges with mental health, and experiences including trauma, bias, stereotyping and discrimination. Following the stories, attendees were invited to join brief small group discussions and share reflections and goals for the future.
