Are you a storyteller? If so, NIH wants to hear from you! NIH’s Office of Science, Outreach and Policy is launching a Voices of NIH project in partnership with StoryCorps to capture the stories of the community. The goal is to recognize and honor the people who enable the work at NIH: patients, families, researchers, doctors, nurses, staff, volunteers, and many other partners. The recorded conversations will become part of StoryCorps’ national oral history project and the NIH archives.
If you would like to participate in StoryCorps, or have questions, please visit http://www.nih.gov/about-nih/who-we-are/sharing-our-stories-voices-nih-community to learn more about this project and to volunteer. Recordings will take place on December 8, 9, and 10 at the main NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
You are encouraged to sign up by November 24 and to share this opportunity with anyone in the broader community who may be interested in participating. For more information about the process, please visit www.storycorps.org/what-to-expect. If you’re not familiar with StoryCorps, and/or would like to hear sample recordings, visit www.storycorps.org.
