COVID-19 INTERVIEW PROJECT
The impacts of COVID-19 are felt by everyone. Our interviewees come from a wide variety of backgrounds with a special emphasis on healthcare providers. While we have a rural focus, we have also been able to engage with state and national leaders. We reached out to Nurses Organization, local healthcare educators, NEC nurse leaders, personal contacts, and AHEC regional and state contacts with an amazing level of response. Almost 100 interviews have been collected.
Our intent is to craft meaningful dialogues that memorialize both the mundane and heroic healthcare efforts during this pandemic. This is the time to share these stories as the needs and lessons learned from this tragic event will be realized for a long time to come.
We discuss the challenges individuals, their families, and their communities are facing both at home and at work. We ask for insight into how healthcare and education will be impacted now and as we move into the future. We listen to stories of leadership, service, compassion, and self-care. For many these interviews have been able to provide a cathartic outlet where they can be heard.
Hear from health providers, educators, and community members about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the evolution of telemedicine, the social connections of today, personal and group coping strategies, and lessons on resilience
