A two-year project on narrative medicine for twenty science and humanities professors to enrich undergraduate and graduate health care programs with literary studies.

The purpose of the project is to train science, English,and nursing faculty at Alcorn State University in the field of literature and medicine. During year one of the project, we will use seminars and guest speakers to disseminate information on narrative medicine. In addition, a year-long reading group will meet and discuss seminal texts on literature and medicine. The final phase of the project will conclude with a three day seminar during which science, English and nursing faculty will design courses in literature and medicine.
