Courtni Jeffers, M.S. MPH
Lecturer, Narrative Medicine
I have an MS in Narrative Medicine from Columbia University and an MPH from George Washington University. I am a University of New England Doctor of Education candidate as well as Assistant Clinical Professor and Assistant Director of Thesis Advising for the Graduate Public Health Programs at UNE.
I teach a narrative equity course in the Narrative Medicine CPA Program at Columbia University. In addition to teaching narrative medicine, I facilitate narrative medicine workshops for hospitals and clinics in Maine, recently co-leading a series with PMA for Maine Medical Center.
My passions lie at the intersection of population health and individual well-being and my collaboration and work aims to reflect the ethical responsibility to both the content and the context of individual and community stories. My expertise lies in social marketing, program planning and evaluation, narrative competency, health literacy, and equipping others to give and receive accounts of self in order to further individual and community healing through narrative and cultural humility.
