While typically delivered in-person, all of Kiran's speaking, training, and consulting services are now being hosted online. While travel remains a concern for many, all services can be delivered via video-conference to online audiences around the world. In addition to real-time options, events can be recorded and made available on a temporary basis for later use.
Compared to other education and public relations professionals whom I have worked with, Kiran Sirah has a sharp instinct for presenting complex information from a relatable and fresh perspective.”

Explore Stories as Medicine
Stories as Medicine is born of a 20-year relationship between ISC and Ballad Health, and serves to illustrate a new understanding of the role of storytelling in people’s overall health and wellbeing. Kiran and his team offer digital training opportunities focused on best practices in both storytelling and healthcare in order to foster empathy, communication, and resilience between and among healthcare providers of all kinds and their clients. Listen below as Wayne Winkler, from East Tennessee NPR-affiliate WETS, interviews Kiran and Dr. Donna Cherry, Associate Professor of social work at East Tennessee State University and ISC consultant, about the new Stories as Medicine initiative.

Kiran brought a fresh, creative energy to our team and helped us to think about creative storytelling in new ways. The toolkit he developed while he was with us continues to be a useful resource for the global network of Partners [for Democratic Change] Centers all over the world.”
