Providers Thriving Together — Narrative Medicine: Close reading makes the heart grow bigger

September 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for the Providers Thriving Together series. These free monthly virtual drop-in sessions provide a facilitated space to experience camaraderie and peer support in the service of activating our collective resilience. Each month, presenters—usually rural peers from around the province—will share practices, frameworks or ideas they’ve found useful. Sessions will prioritize time for exploring these themes in both small and large groups.



NARRATIVE MEDICINE:  Close reading makes the heart grow bigger



Presenters: Dr. Caroline Shooner

Facilitator: Drs. Rahul Gupta


Fill out the registration form. We’ll send you a calendar invite, along with monthly reminders of session dates.



About Caroline Shooner 


Caroline grew up in Montreal and completed her medical degree at McGill University (1996) and her Family Medicine residency at Memorial University (1998). She spent the first years of her medical career traveling and working across the country, while also recording music and performing as part of the original folk duo Her Sweet Time.  ​​ In 2007, Caroline joined the Daajing Giids (formerly Queen Charlotte) medical team and has been practicing on Haida Gwaii ever since.  


Caroline is interested in how the Arts and Humanities can help promote health and allow us to look more critically and meaningfully at how we practice medicine. She has always thought of medicine as “Applied Humanities.” In 2015, she completed a MSc in Medical Humanities at King’s College London. During this year, she was introduced to the field of Graphic Medicine and started drawing cartoons, inspired by the comic side of small town medicine: The Boon Docs.
