Getting to know Jonathan Garcia  
“A lot of my work involves witnessing human suffering and vulnerability. Most of what I’ve written is supported by direct narratives from people I’ve interviewed. I strive to affect people’s lives by transmitting their voices to others and informing transformative interventions that alleviate suffering and promote health. I also strive to be a good teacher and mentor for my students – which many times simply involves active and empathic listening.”
