Review of Front Lines: Portraits of Caregivers in Northern British Columbia

Storytelling is an ancient art, and since time immemorial the sharing of our stories has been fundamental to building relationships and community. With the stories in Front Lines, Sarah de Leeuw forges ahead, breaking new trails in the northern medical landscape. Readers are swiftly and surely placed in positions of deeper understanding of our shared human experiences, our shared experiences of life north of the 54th parallel and our shared hopes and dreams for building and sustaining community health.

Reading these stories reminded me of my personal and professional experiences where the sharing of stories was critical to the way we as people view each other and to the way we view health outcomes.
