Health Humanities Research Group

The Health Humanities Research Group is an interdisciplinary scholarly community that supports and enhances the research of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and clinicians in the greater Houston area. During monthly meetings, participants volunteer to share their research and research-based pedagogy in the health humanities. Through the network, scholars may publicize medical humanities events and initiatives, as well as develop collaborative projects and organize co-hosted events.

Online Fall 2023 meetings dates and research presenters will be announced soon.
