MOREHEAD, Ky. (WTVQ) – Morehead State University’s Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) has implemented a new project to bring awareness and recognition to its volunteers and their Kentucky roots.

Kentucky SMP worked with Louisville-based mural artists Often Seen Rarely Spoken (OSRS) to bring together the images and create a series of murals across the state.

The goal of the SMP Mural Project is to bring together images of the communities it serves and the volunteers in a visual way.

MSU’s mural was unveiled at a ceremony on Tuesday at the Educational Services Building.

The SMP program is a national program that works to prevent, detect and report Medicare fraud, errors or abuse through outreach, counseling and education. The MSU SMP serves senior citizens in Bath, Boyd, Bracken, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lawrence, Lewis, Mason, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, Robertson and Rowan counties. The program has more than 60 volunteers.
