Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 6.52.51 AMKU is celebrating its 150th anniversary over the upcoming year. As part of this celebration, they are interested in hearing from you about the impact the school or its graduates have made on you, someone you know, or your community. “We frequently hear stories about medical treatment and the impact of a local doctor that trained at KU. But, there are significant stories about nurses and others in health professions. So, please share your story! There are no bounds on the kinds of stories we would like to hear.”

A 60 second audio recording or video will be created telling your story. If accepted your story will be published on our celebratory website and archived in the Clendening Library on the KUMC campus in Kansas City.

If you are interested in sharing your story, please contact:
