“Great stories happen to those who can tell them.”
– Ira Glass, host and producer of This American Life
Stories are a great way of learning from others, and can help shape our society in ways we didn’t think possible. Stories are life affirming, and give people the creative space to reflect, learn and discover how we as a society are impacted by the experiences of others.
For this reason, we are hosting a live storytelling event on December 8th at Theater Works in Hartford to share stories about how real people’s lives have been positively impacted by the Affordable Care Act.
Taking a page from the Moth Radio Hour –a national show known for its live performances of true stories – we hope to draw diverse voices and a wide range of experiences to feature at this unique event.
Whether you’ve just enrolled in health coverage through Access Health CT or benefiting from the many new protections under the Affordable Care Act, or have fought and transformed healthcare in some way – tell us your story below. We might just ask you to share your story live.
Examples of stories we’re looking for:
- Experiences as a new Medicaid patient
- A newly enrolled individual who was previously denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition
- A young adult who has been able to stay on your parent’s plan
- Policy maker, healthcare provider or community advocate’s perspective on how you’ve fought or transformed healthcare in Connecticut
Don’t worry; we won’t let you do this alone! We’ll work with you to shape, prepare and share your story. If you have questions, please contact Heang Tan at [email protected] or call (860) 263-9204.
