The Local

X-LAB

The future of healthcare is local.

The Local is a storytelling platform that brings a human dimension to health data. It’s mission is to tell stories that bring out the unique characteristics of different parts of Toronto, give voice to people who have poor health outcomes and are often not heard, and ultimately, inform how services could be improved and be more equitable.

The Local borrows tools from ethnography, digital storytelling and journalism to look beyond what data can tell us about the issues, needs, gaps, and opportunities from a human experience standpoint.

Our approach is to let the data lead us to the stories, and then to let the stories take us beyond the data.
