Case-based learning has long been used in medical education. A Story of Health eBook grounds the science of health in stories of fictional people, their families, and communities to enable readers to explore the risk factors for disease as well as how to prevent disease and promote health and resilience.

Using the setting of a family reunion as a backdrop, the eBook explores how multiple environments influence our health across the lifespan. When people get sick or develop a disability, they often ask their health care providers, “How or why did this happen?” In some cases, the answer is obvious. In others, it’s more complicated. A Story of Health is a multimedia eBook that explores this question and delves into how environments interact with genes to influence health across the lifespan.

Representatives from The Collaborative on Health and the Environment’s (CHE’s) will discuss A Story of Health. CHE’s primary mission is to strengthen the science dialogue on environmental factors impacting human health and to facilitate collaborative, multifactorial, prevention-oriented efforts to address environmental health concerns
