What [or who?] contributes to your health and well-being? What kinds of healing practices do you engage in? Is affordable healthcare something you are concerned about? Have you had positive or negative health[care] experiences that you would like to share? What do you do to stay healthy? Does your health impact others? Does the health of others impact you? Does living in western Massachusetts affect your health? What does it mean to be healthy? Has illness, cancer, or disability affected your life (or the lives of people you love?) What can we do as a community to support each other’s well-being?
Does creativity make us healthier?
