 Biography for Dawn Lim:

 I am an emergency doctor, assistant professor of medicine, and an amateur photographer and writer based in Toronto. I enjoy weaving storytelling into my practice to help me connect to my patients. I feel storytelling builds empathy and is a great way to combine my interests in medicine and the arts. I’m particularly interested in photo-essays depicting motherhood and life in the emergency department.
