Introducing Rochester Voices: A new project with UMR's CoLab course

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.
