We are about to embark on a literary adventure called 1001 Journals. We'll start two brand new journals. One will be made for traveling and the other will be made to stay at El Centro. Last week the filmmaker Andrea Kreuzhage came with the documentary 1000 Journals and explained how it works. Two mentees were there, both artistic, and so each one will start and create the first entries into the journal. Very exciting!!!
In November of 2009, UCSF Children's Hospital began a program using the 1001 Journals project to provide opportunities for personal expression and facilitate sharing amongst patients, their families, and the hospital staff who care for them. The program, which continues today, has enabled the kids to share and communicate their stories in a safe, comfortable medium."The pages are filled with a hope, an inspiration, and a joy that can only be described as amazing" states Kimberly Scurr, RN, Director of The Pediatric Heart Center and Perinatal Services at UCSF
