    "Stories to reach, teach, and heal: a guide for diabetes health educators was written with the hope that sharing stories can build connections on paths toward wellness, especially for people affected by diabetes. Throughout this publication, we show how health educators can use storytelling to inspire people to think about diabetes--and their ability to cope with it--in new ways. We also offer suggestions on how to ask people to share the stories that hold meaning form them. To expand the use of storytelling in public health, CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation developed this publication as a way diabetes educators can use stories to connect with their patients. Stories to reach, teach, and heal was created with assistance from Cathy Feste, a master storyteller and health educator." - p. 3
