Announcement: The formation of the Canadian Association for Health Humanities


The newly-formed Canadian Association for Health Humanities is being introduced to serve and support the ever-growing health humanities community in Canada. We invite health professions educators, students, practitioners, creative writers and artists, along with scholars across multiple disciplines – whose varying perspectives and creative work encourage a broader, more critical view of health and illness beyond an overriding medicalized framework in support of more humanistic health professions education and practice across Canada and abroad.

CAHH activities, both current and planned, reflect growing interest in the vibrant, ever-evolving field of the health humanities. These activities include:

annual Creating Space meetings
website platform, listserv, and social media for information sharing and networking
association with the journal ARS Medica
formal affiliations with other international medical/ health humanities associations
other new initiatives, proposed and organized by CAHH members
