Critical Lifelines: Portraits and Stories of Home Care Workers. Michigan State
University received a fellowship from the Library of Congress American Folklife
Center to capture the stories of 30 Personal Care Workers across Michigan through
in-depth interviews and photographs. This oral history project is proving to be an
important vehicle for raising public and legislator awareness of a major public
health issue and strategies for addressing the issue. The photographs and stories
have been archived in the Library of Congress for future use by the public and
researchers interested in workforce issues.
