Nunn Center Partnership with Hospice of the Bluegrass Featured on WUKY

The Nunn Center at the University of Kentucky Libraries has recently partnered with Hospice of the Bluegrass on REFLECTIONS, an initiative to use volunteers to conduct oral history interviews with patients under the care of Hospice of the Bluegrass.  Initially, the project is focusing on the Central Kentucky area but will eventually be expanded statewide.  This is an incredible project that I am so proud of.  For questions on how to volunteer, contact Hospice of the Bluegrass volunteer coordinator Turner West: twest@hospicebg.org

The oral history project was featured on WUKY this morning as part of the Storycorps National Day of Listening initiative.  A great chance to shed light on this wonderful local project!  Take a listen below an don’t forget to subscribe to the podcast.
