Introducing Rochester Voices: A new project with UMR's CoLab course
Over the next two months, the Med City Beat will be working with a group of students from University of Minnesota Rochester's Community Collaboratory course on a project we're calling "Rochester Voices."
Our goal is to explore the community and find extraordinary, yet relatively unknown, individuals who can provide insight into what it means to visit, work and live in Rochester. We will then share their experiences on social media.
The project is modeled after the popular Humans of New York series.
We want to speak with people with diverse backgrounds, interests and perspectives. Some interview subjects will be randomly found on the street; others we will intentionally seek out. If you have any recommendations on someone we should speak with, please fill out the form below.
The following students will be producing the Rochester Voices project: Kaylie Bisping, Lauren Cooper and Elise Bixby.
Last semester, the Med City Beat partnered with UMR's CoLab course to produce a special report on the Destination Medical Center initiative.
