author, pediatrician, outdoorswoman

About

Claire Unis MD MFA is a board-certified practicing pediatrician who brings her love of writing, as well as her understanding of every individual’s need for personal expression, to her work as a communication coach and teacher of fellow clinicians in her medical group. Her creative nonfiction has been published in a number of journals including Intima: A Journal of Narrative Medicine, Awakenings Review, and East Iowa Review. Her memoir about drawing on diverse experiences in the process of becoming a doctor is titled “Balance, Pedal, Breathe: A Journey through Medical School.” Publication date April 2022.

Currently Claire facilitates writing workshops and discussions of literature through her moniker, LifeLines: Literary Art in Medicine. Passionate as she is about written and spoken word, she enjoys sharing literary enrichment as a means to combat burnout. She has recently started offering Narrative Medicine sessions to clinicians, and she hopes to incorporate these techniques into working with people in all aspects of the healthcare milieu.

"For me, medicine and writing intertwine naturally, both requiring a depth of perception and reflection that enriches the lives of doctors and patients, authors and their readers."
