    At PaTH, we are collecting patient and caregivers’ stories through the My PaTH Story Booth initiative. People from across the country are invited to share and we hope the MyPaTH Story Booth archives will serve as an engagement resource for diverse PCORnet researchers and beyond. We also hope the stories help develop people-centered research questions and foster stakeholder engagement.

    I’d love to hear how patient stories have influenced your thinking about health and health care. What ideas have these stories stimulated?  Have these stories provided you with valuable insight into what it is like to live with illness? How could you use these insights in your everyday practice and in your research? Would you be interested in sharing your own health story? Why or why not?

    Looking forward to a rich conversation!

    Hi Kathleen,

    Thank you so much for a fantastic Best Practices Sharing Session!  I went back to the link you provided in the slides to try to find some examples of recordings, but I couldn’t find where those are archived.  Are some of the recordings  available to the general public? If so, where?
