University Featured as Vital Organization for Keeping Kentucky and Our Nation Healthy
“kNOwMORE Nonprofits” educates viewers on critical role of Nurse-Midwives and Nurse Practitioners
HYDEN, KY – The eighth episode of the kNOwMORE Nonprofits educational television series features Frontier Nursing University (FNU) as one of four nonprofits that are keeping Kentucky and our nation healthy. The episode, “Nonprofits Keeping Kentucky Healthy,” premiered on Feb 6th, 2014, on Kentucky Educational Television (a statewide PBS network), and demonstrates what it would be like without critical health initiatives, providers and mission-driven nonprofits in our communities.
“Nonprofits Keeping Kentucky Healthy” features FNU in a segment that educates viewers on the important role of nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners in providing care to Kentuckians and nationwide. Interviews with Dr. Susan Stone, FNU President and Dr. Julie Marfell, FNU Dean of Nursing as well as several faculty and students, are included in the show.
“There is a high need for nurse practitioners and certified nurse-midwives to reach underserved populations,” shares FNU student Sarah Kent. “FNU is the largest producer of Certified Nurse-Midwives in our country and has a rich history of serving underserved populations in rural communities.”
In addition to featuring FNU, the kNOwMORE Nonprofits episode includes segments on Kosair Charities' Face It campaign against child abuse and Kids Cancer Alliance’s summer camp, both based in Louisville, Kentucky. Lexington’s nationally recognized Surgery on Sunday is also featured.
kNOwMORE Nonprofits is a television series that educates viewers about the positive impact of local nonprofit organizations and furthers awareness about the work being accomplished by these organizations throughout the state of Kentucky. The goal of kNOwMORE Nonprofits is to motivate people to find their passion for helping… in hopes that they will start a conversation, get involved, volunteer, donate or spread the word.
