Strong Medicine is You

By , March 14, 2014

Strong Medicine is a digital archive of the stories, photographs, and other media created by the medical community in response to the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing and its aftermath. We urge you to take a moment to reflect upon last year and submit a record of your experience to Strong Medicine. Contribute to Strong Medicine here:

Some of us ran that day; some were at the finish line; others were working in the hospitals as the injured arrived or when the lock down occurred. Some of us were at home frustrated and worrying about our friends and family who might have been in harm’s way. Wherever you were that day and in the days following, your viewpoint as a medical student, health professional, or support staff person was influenced by your role in the medical community. We are seeking your stories because you experienced Marathon Monday and its aftermath in unique and personal ways.

Every story is important. We want to hear yours.

By submitting your stories for Strong Medicine, you are creating a resource useful for medical education, disaster management training and response, historical research, and other purposes yet unrealized. Strong Medicine offers Bostonians and people around the world a glimpse into our remarkable medical community, helping them to remember, reflect, and heal.
