Northern Kentucky University’s Nurse Advocacy Center for the Underserved, or NACU, actually does more than its name implies. The program not only advocates for poor and underserved populations throughout Cincinnati and northern Kentucky, but each year it also provides vaccines, direct aid, and nursing care to hundreds of people who desperately need it.

Here our guests discuss the dramatic impact that NACU has on people like Keisha Owens and others in the Brighton Recovery Center for Women, as well as homeless and underprivileged people across the region. As we approach the holidays, this is truly an episode you don’t want to miss—an amazing story of sacrifice, compassion, and the emotional bonds that are formed between nurses, students, and the populations they serve.
