The students are making a memory book, by collecting memories in a scrapbook which will be given to Kent's family. Advocate story May 22, 2014 Comments Since September, St. Joseph Hospice has recruited volunteers from LSU and Our Lady of the Lake College for the Memory Project to interview hospice patients and write a history of their lives. This spring, ten LSU pre-med students, in teams of two, are learning the stories of people they’ve never met. In the end, those families will get a book filled with stories and photos to help them remember their loved one and pass that story on to younger generations. The families aren’t the only ones who benefit. The program is designed to give medical professionals experience dealing with people facing their mortality — seeing them not as a list of symptoms, but as individuals with stories all their own.
