Annie Brewster, MD, is a practicing physician at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, and a patient living with Multiple Sclerosis since 2001. She founded Health Story Collaborative (HSC) in 2013.

HSC is a 501 (c)(3) organization founded on the belief, and supported by research, that storytelling promotes health.

HSC programs use storytelling to promote social change by addressing real-world problems, such as the current opioid overdose epidemic.
