The Partnership 

HOw it happened

Dear World presents to the American Association of Critical Care Nurses annual conference in 2022. Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) nurses attend and are inspired to bring Dear World to their organization. Director of Nursing Research and Innovation, Dr. Jennifer Hayakawa assembles an interdisciplinary team to participate in the inaugural NurseHack4Health Pitch-A-Thon event. Dr. Hayakawa received seed funding from #FirstRespondersFirst and ALL IN: Wellbeing First for Healthcare to bring this program to life at CHOC.

How we onboarded Storytellers.

Dear World delivers its custom storytelling curriculum over three weeks to certify 10 CHOC associates in the Brain Tattoo storytelling method. 

“As we waited in line for our photos, we wrote these “brain tattoos” on each other. A magical thing happened-we laughed, we cried, and we connected through our stories. The Dear World experience creates a space to encourage deep connection, vulnerability, and expression.”
