Everyone has a story. Research (and our own experience) shows that stories have a way of engaging us, connecting us and reminding us that we are powerful agents of change. We can be the hero on a quest to slay the dragon and, in the process, find out who we really are.

In this issue, you will hear the stories of some of our nurses and the moments that had a big impact on their career. You will witness the courage it takes for a social worker to simply show up and do her job.

Learn how a speech pathologist uses diversity in stories to help her patients see themselves. Or read about how Cincinnati Children's is starting a new chapter in how we care for our environment.

See how parents used storytelling to show their appreciation for our Children's for Children staff.

And finally, read about how data-powered stories are helping to address community health issues and their root causes.

Everyone has a story. What's yours? We'd love to hear it.
