Nursing Standard showcases Theresa Nash’s work in tackling social isolation with the help of student nurses through Heritage2health.

heritage2health

Kingston and St George’s Senior Lecturer, School of Nursing, Theresa Nash is the Founder and director of Heritage2health, a project that  brings together people from all walks of life to share a learning journey and tackle social isolation. People who consider themselves to be socially excluded or isolated because of age, disability or the demands of caring come together with students and staff in health, social care and the arts link to jointly plan and host team challenge events in heritage spaces. The historic and open space is used as a creative place to enable participants to design and host a shared challenge; creative, historic, physical and social.

In a recent Nursing Standard article, Theresa explains how the whole project came about and the benefits it brings to the nursing students and the participants. Read it here.
