StoryCorps Legacy provides people with serious illness of all ages and their families the opportunity to record, preserve, and share their stories.
Partnering with StoryCorps Legacy
We partner with organizations that serve people with serious illness and their families. These include hospice care, palliative care, and disease-specific centers. We assist our partners in incorporating the StoryCorps interview experience into their existing services by training and preparing them to conduct and record interviews using equipment that we provide.
