Our Story

Health Stories Project was created to give people opportunities to share their personal health experiences and to learn from the experiences of others.

Why? Because we believe in the power of stories… we’ve seen them change days, change lives, and even change industries.

Our community is a welcoming place where you can discover the stories of people facing health challenges similar to your own, inspire others by sharing your personal health journey, and connect with a community of people who care.

You may also choose to learn about other ways to get involved, such as opportunities to participate in activities designed to inform and advance the healthcare industry – including surveys, online focus groups, and speaking events.

Participating in these activities is a choice that is entirely up to you. It will not affect your ability to connect with the Health Stories Project community.

We hope you’ll share your story soon.

Your Privacy

We take your privacy very seriously. If you wish to remain anonymous when commenting on the website, we encourage you to choose a username and profile picture that do not identify you personally.

We believe that looking at trends around health conditions and experiences can help organizations looking for answers. In order to support the advancement of healthcare, we may share information from the website with healthcare organizations engaged in research, advocacy, or development of new treatments, but we will never share information that could identify you individually.

We may let you know about opportunities to share your stories directly with healthcare organizations we partner with based on your health interests, but participating is a choice that is entirely up to you.

We hope you’ll join the Health Stories Project community to discover, share and inspire.
