Heather A. Stilwell is assistant professor of communication arts at California Baptist University.
Stilwell’s Discoveries of Medically-Themed Media: Pediatric Patients and Parents’ Journeys of Sense-making is at the top of my must-read list for health communication scholars, students, and practitioners as it is theoretically grounded and practical. It is a comprehensively readable and inspiring book…. accessible and personalized, it is essential for those interested in narratives and humanizing healthcare. Her writing is stunning and the stories she showcases are as well written and compelling as they are vital. She is a powerful storyteller in that the narratives she shares awakens the reader and gives insights from individual, relational, and organizational perspectives to figure out ways to make the healthcare system a place for healing.
