Smith Public Relations/ Marketing Coordinator Connection | College of Health Sciences College News Message from Dr. Sharon Stewart, Interim Dean Dear Friends, Community outreach and civic engagement are priorities in our college, and in this edition of Connection the service of our faculty, staff, students and alumni shines brightly. Throughout this publication, we pull together stories for our alumni and friends to give a glimpse into our activities here in the College. Looking back on the articles we’ve compiled in the following pages, I’m reminded that our College is truly committed to the University’s land-grant mission that calls on us to make a difference for the state of Kentucky. This calling is heard by every member of our College, as is demonstrated in this issue. Through our partnership with the Colleges of Pharmacy and Dentistry, we were able to bring a better understanding of health care to fourth graders at Maxwell Elementary School in Lexington. Through this project, our faculty and students taught young children about health care careers and planted seeds of curiosity to help motivate them to learn more about health care as they mature and explore. The College has a strong commitment to interprofessional outreach. The 2013 Rehabilitation Sciences Spring Colloquium was centered on the dynamic teamwork taking place in our interprofessional research teams to improve the health of our communities. College-wide, we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others, both as a unit and as individuals. Under the leadership of the Office of Student Affairs, teams of faculty, staff, students and alumni spent a day in April volunteering for nonprofit organizations in the region. College faculty and physical therapy students at the Center of Excellence in Rural Health in Hazard began their participation in Project CARAT, a project to clean, repair and distribute used medical equipment to people who need it. One of our staff members received regional recognition as the 2013 Red Cross Hero of the Year for her volunteerism. This spring, we also inducted two highly respected Physical Therapy professionals into our Hall of Fame, both having strong backgrounds in community outreach and international medical missions. During my time at CHS, it has become evident to me that our college prides itself in not only its academic and research excellence but also in how we can share our collective knowledge and expertise to benefit the greater good both locally and internationally. It is in this, among many other things, that I take great pride in being part of the CHS family, and I hope you feel the same as you browse this edition. Warmest Regards, Sharon R. Stewart, Ed.D. University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences 3 Connection | College of Health Sciences College News College-wide Day of Service Volunteers participated in a variety of activities, from cleaning a children’s gym, to gardening, to picking up trash along the Kentucky River. Participating organizations included The Nature Conservancy of Kentucky, The Ronald McDonald House, Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, God’s Pantry Food Bank and AIDS Volunteers of Lexington (AVOL). “I chose to volunteer to offer a ‘payback’ to our community,” said CHS Alum Pat Waggener. “I served most of my working years in a health care setting, so it seemed quite comfortable to be assigned to Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital. It was truly an honor to work with staff and students of the College to provide assistance to the Hospital in their service. We not only worked as a team but used the opportunity to learn more about each other.” CHS Staff Linda Allen, Kristie Bruner, Brooke Smith and student Kent Llamara joined The Nature Conservancy of Kentucky for a field day to pick up trash along the Kentucky River in Garrard County. On a cool day in April, College of Health Sciences faculty, staff, students and alumni joined forces to meet the needs of local nonprofit organizations in the Bluegrass region. The College’s Office of Student Affairs coordinated a Day of Service on April 19 that brought together groups of CHS volunteers who traveled to various nonprofit organizations in the area to lend a helping hand for the day. The goal was to offer participants a chance to serve the community while gaining a deeper appreciation and new perspective on how the mission of each organization related to health care and public well-being. “The Day of Service was organized to bring students, faculty and staff from all disciplines within the College of Health Sciences together to learn from, with, and about each other as they provided service to the community,” said Dr. Randa Remer, Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and coordinator of the event. CHS Staff Dr. Randa Remer, Kathy Ringo-Schuler and Amy Confides did some gardening for the Ronald McDonald House in Lexington. 4 University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences The day was designed to take volunteers out of the classroom, office and clinic to experience hands-on projects involved in the daily function of each nonprofit. This pilot project was meant to further the outreach mission of the College. “I believe the day was a success,” said Remer. “Students, faculty and staff were able to connect with one another and to learn about the work of local agencies and ways their work relates to each of our programs.” CHS Alum Pat Waggener joined in to help clean a children’s gymnasium for Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital. Connection | College of Health Sciences Academic News CHS Expands American Sign Language Courses In the fall semester of 2012, the Division of Communication Sciences and Disorders offered a course in American Sign Language (ASL). Not knowing if the class would fill, the Division felt that offering ASL could be a great benefit for students. ASL is approved as a foreign language by the University and students may take it to satisfy their foreign language requirement. What the Division did not know was that not only would every seat be taken, but that a waiting list would form, and students from all across campus would flock to the opportunity. The Division soon realized the need to add more sections of ASL to meet the high demand. To teach the class, the Division brought in Anthony Isaacs. Professor Isaacs received his Master of Science in Deaf Education from McDaniel College in Maryland, and he is certified by the American Sign Language Teachers Association. He is also Deaf. “I believe the high demand for the ASL classes comes from the fact that the language is a fun and new experience for many students,” said Professor Isaacs. “Knowing ASL makes students more competitive for job placement. A health care provider who can have direct communication with a Deaf patient is very desirable, especially for speech language pathologists who work regularly with patients who have deafness or any other diagnoses who may use signs. It’s good if they can sign and have direct communication with patients to improve therapy sessions.” Professor Isaacs offers students a unique opportunity to learn about ASL and Deaf culture from the Deaf perspective. When students enter the classroom, they soon realize that spoken language is off the table. “I require all of my students to use earplugs in the classroom so that they learn with their eyes,” said Professor Isaacs. “ASL is a visual language, and I want them to immerse themselves with signs and not depend on their ears. Since I began requiring the earplugs, I’ve seen a significant improvement in the overall success of students’ ability to hone in on ASL skills and get a better grasp of the language.” Incorporating cultural awareness into classroom learning is another important factor. As with any language, not all people with deafness are the same and they identify in different ways. Those who grow up with ASL identify as Deaf (with a capital D) and those who did not use ASL as their primary language identify as deaf (with a lowercase d). There are also those who use a combination of ASL or signs and a spoken language. Professor Isaacs emphasizes in his classroom that ASL and Deaf culture is complex with a rich history full of its own literature, visual and performing arts. “It’s important that students understand that you can’t separate the culture and the language; they are two together. Deaf people do not identify as being disabled, we identify as the Deaf or ASL culture. We are a community, and we connect with our signs. In my classroom, I focus on ASL culture to help students understand what it means to be around and socialize with people with deafness. Deaf culture is unique, and I think it’s a wonderful thing to bring to campus. Some colleges and universities do not offer ASL courses.” Anthony Isaacs joined the Division of Communication Sciences & Disorders at the University of Kentucky in 2012 as an ASL Instructor. He received his B.S. and B.A. from Gallaudet University. He obtained his M.S. in Deaf Education in 2007 from McDaniel College. He is Deaf. He is certified by the American Sign Language Teachers Association (ASLTA). Having a better understanding of Deaf culture helps students understand not only the signs but also etiquette associated with ASL. For instance, Professor Isaacs mentions the hesitancy that hearing people feel when they encounter an ASL conversation. “They feel the need to pause and apologize for walking through, when in fact Deaf people are quite used to having people walk through their signing conversation,” said Professor Isaacs. “It’s actually more rude to try to stop and apologize because it’s an interruption to the conversation flow.” Because ASL is a very physical language, hearing individuals may also misconstrue the emotional reaction of a signing person. “ASL signs involve the total body and hearing people may misinterpret these movements as agitation or anger. We use our eyebrows and facial expressions as our grammar; eye contact is vital. At the same time I’m always aware that not everyone knows about ASL culture and may not feel comfortable with things like tapping my shoulder or flipping my office lights to get my attention. I’m happy to use notes and email as a way to communicate with people who do not know ASL.” Professor Isaacs was excited to come to UK. He grew up in Kentucky and attended the KY School for the Deaf in Danville. “I’ve loved UK since I was a young boy, signing frantically at the basketball players on television,” he said. He’s also pleased with the accommodations that UK offers Deaf faculty, staff and students, such as interpreters, video phones and blinking fire alarms. “I love the UK campus and the diversity it offers, and I’m happy to be a part of it.” University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences 5 Connection | College of Health Sciences Faculty/Staff News New Faculty & Staff Stephen Firsing III, PhD Steve Schwarze, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM Assistant Professor Medical Laboratory Science Part-time Instructor Clinical Leadership and Management Anthony Isaacs, MS, ASLTA Part-time Instructor, American Sign Language Communication Sciences and Disorders Retiree Anna Moore Administrative Support Associate I Clinical Sciences Betsy Northup, MPA, GPC College Grants Officer Business Office Employee of the Year 2013 CHS Kingston Award Dr. Charles Marshall is the 2013 recipient of the Kingston Award. He is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Physical Therapy whose primary teaching responsibility is to the Hazard campus. Dr. Marshall serves a very unique role in the physical therapy program, as he is located at the Center of Excellence in Rural Health. He is responsible for teaching Human Gross Anatomy, Advanced Osetology Elective, Histology for Physical Therapy Students, Neuroanatomy & Physiology. “I am honored and humbled to win the Kingston Award. I love teaching, especially to students near my home in rural Kentucky,” said Dr. Marshall. For the 2012 calendar year, Cynthia Byars has been named the College of Health Sciences Employee of the Year. Cynthia works in the CHS Office of Research as the Research Projects Manager. Awarded during the Faculty and Staff Recognition Luncheon, Cynthia was recognized for her high level of performance in the Office of Research. She was described as creative, industrious and credited for being service-minded and taking initiative to make sure all tasks are completed on a timely basis. Cynthia has been with the CHS Office of Research for three years. 6 University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences Throughout his teaching, Dr. Marshall demonstrates sound educational pedagogy that is appreciated by his students. Along with his commitment to teaching, also comes a calm and professional advisor. He is a role model for many of the rural students in the PT program, and his easy-going advising style is appreciated. His presence on the campus gives students someone to emulate. He is an example of someone who has used a strong education in a positive way to give back to his community, as he is originally from Hazard. “Dr. Marshall’s dedication to the Hazard students is seen day after day,” said Hannah Jefferson, Physical Therapy Class of 2013 President. “He advocates for everyone in our program and legitimately wants all of us to succeed. He will entertain any questions from each of the three classes at any given time throughout the semester, as well as asking how we are doing on clinical rotations and honestly caring about our futures.” Connection | College of Health Sciences Faculty/Staff News Get to know John Williams, PhD Faculty in Clinical Leadership & Management Clinical Concepts and Medical Terminology, and currently, Healthcare Finance. Background: • B.S. from Manhattan College • MBA from University of Saint Thomas • PhD from University of Kentucky, College of Public Health Tell us a little about your career thus far. I joined the University of Kentucky College of Public Health faculty in 2008 following an extensive career in public health and hospital administration. In 2012, I became an Assistant Professor for the CHS. My scholarly interests focus on workforce development, particularly in the area of rural public health preparedness. Other interests include systems modeling, research on program monitoring and evaluation, and competency development. I’ve taught a variety of courses including, Health Policy and Law, Health Services Administration, Management of Public Health Organizations, During my career in academia, I have been actively involved in public health and health care at the local, state and national levels. I am currently the 2012 Chair of the Health Administration Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA). I previously served as Section Councilor and Minority Whip for APHA. Since 2009, I have been an abstract reviewer for APHA. I served as an item writer for the National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE) during 2011 and 2012. What made you interested in a position with the College of Health Sciences? Long before I left the College of Public Health, a good friend and colleague told me about the possibility of a position in the Clinical Leadership and Management Program. He shared with me the type of students the program attracts. I was very interested in applying my previous clinical experiences, as well as academic expertise to meet the needs of this unique, non-traditional group of students. Finally, I was attracted to the size of the college – I liked the idea of a more personal relationship with colleagues and students. So far, my expectations have been met, and I am honored to be working here. I was also very interested in the new B.S. program in Human Health Sciences. It is an exciting venture that will bridge the gap between undergraduate and professional programs, preparing students for graduate level work. The program promises to develop competencies related to interprofessional health care delivery. What do you see as the strengths of the Clinical Leadership & Management Program? I believe the Clinical Leadership and Management Program (CLM) is unique. The program currently accepts health care professionals who are interested in honing their leadership skills, in order to advance in their job by obtaining a bachelor’s degree. It is the only program, to my knowledge, that offers this type of training in Kentucky for nontraditional students who have associate degrees. Another strength of the CLM program is our commitment to expanding opportunities to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree to health care workers who are location-bound because of work and/or family and unable to attend classes in Lexington. We will be offering distance learning courses in two other cities. These three qualities build my excitement about being a part of the College of Health Sciences. Young Investigator Award Distinguished Scholar Award Brian Noehren, PT, PhD is recipient of the 2013 CHS Young Investigator Award. He is recognized for establishing a fundable line of research, attainment of extramural funding, expansion of research skills beyond biomechanics and into imaging, and scholarly activity (publications, book chapter, and presentations). Dr. Noehren’s research is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and American Physical Therapy Association. In addition to these projects, he is also devoted to mentoring a team of students in the CHS Undergraduate Research Program. Dr. Tim Uhl, Associate Professor in the Division of Athletic Training, has received the CHS Distinguished Scholar Award, presented at the annual Faculty and Staff Recognition Luncheon in April. The purpose of the CHS Distinguished Scholar Award is to recognize a faculty member who has made significant and lasting contributions to his or her discipline. The award is intended to serve as recognition for a distinguished body of work that has made an impact on the discipline over time. Faculty Council selected Dr. Uhl as the 2013 recipient because of his exemplary work as a clinician-scientist and scholar. His work has positively influenced the communities of athletic training, physical therapy and orthopedic medicine. University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences 7 Connection | College of Health Sciences Faculty/Staff News Linda Allen Named 2013 American Red Cross Hero of the Year Community service is something that CHS takes seriously, with many faculty, staff and students engaged in service projects and trips every semester. This year a CHS staff person received regional recognition for her outstanding commitment to serving others. We’re proud to say that Linda Allen, Admissions Officer in the Office of Student Affairs, has been named the 2013 American Red Cross Hero of the Year. Every year the Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross runs a Heroes Campaign to raise funds for its services and programs. The campaign involves 33 community leaders who work locally to raise funds for emergency services and concludes with the Hero of the Year dinner and reception in May at the Griffin Gate Marriott in Lexington. The Heroes Campaign is a community awareness and fundraising campaign that seeks to recognize individuals who are making a difference in the community, while also supporting the local Red Cross through financial contributions. “Our goals were to strengthen the local Red Cross chapter, educate our constituents about the programs and services offered by the American Red Cross, and recognize community heroes,” said Terry Burkhart, Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross Bluegrass Chapter. Linda was nominated by UK HealthCare and chosen as one of three finalists, and she was notified of the big win at the dinner where a short video was played recognizing her efforts. She was chosen as the Hero of the Year for her volunteerism with Parkside Manor and Shady Lawn nursing homes in Cynthiana, KY. For the residents of both homes, she organizes clothing, furniture and food drives, spends countless visiting hours, sorts clothing, makes welcome baskets for new residents and visits those who must stay in the hospital. When new residents arrive at the homes, she brings them welcome baskets full of products from her donation drives including shampoo, candy and stationery. By helping residents adjust to their new home, she becomes a friend and confidant. “What people forget about people who have mental illnesses is that they are human and have feelings, too,” said Linda. “Everyone needs someone! When I hear the residents’ stories of loneliness and abandonment, how they’ve been moved from facility to facility with no place to call home, how society shuns them, it breaks my heart. Everyone needs a friend, to know they’re loved and have value.” Linda is that friend for so many people and CHS is proud to have her in its family. 8 University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences Connection | College of Health Sciences Research News Project CARAT Recycles and Refurbishes Medical Equipment in Eastern Kentucky by Ann Blackford, UK Office of Public Relations Many people in the Appalachian region of Kentucky have little or no access to health insurance to assist in paying for medical equipment like walkers, wheelchairs, canes, or crutches. A group of faculty and students at the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences is taking part in a project to bring in used medical equipment, clean and repair it, and distribute it to the people who need it. This project, Coordinating and Assisting the Reuse of Assistive Technology (CARAT), began in May 2012 with a $450,000, three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. “Assistive Technology recycling is done across the United States and Medicaid equipment recycling is done in a few places, but nowhere are they using this service-learning type of model that we are using here in Kentucky,” said Carol Weber, project coordinator for CARAT in the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. CARAT partners include the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Kentucky Appalachian Rural Rehabilitation Network (KARRN) based at UK, and the Bluegrass Technology Center. KARRN is an NIH-funded project to support people in Eastern Kentucky returning home after stroke, brain or spinal cord injuries and is a partner of the Center of Excellence in Rural Health in Hazard. “The Center of Excellence in Rural Health in Hazard is serving as the Southeast refurbishing site for CARAT and physical therapy students there manage the Hazard part of the program,” said Patrick Kitzman, Associate Professor in the UK Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences Doctoral Programs. “This project gives the students a great opportunity for gaining leadership skills in running a part of this project, gaining experience in refurbishing durable medical equipment, and providing a service to their community.” Two of those physical therapy students, Devon Burchett and Jessica Bickwermert, are excited to give back and get hands-on training that will help them in their careers. “We’ve brought in used equipment; we have cleaned them; we’ve replaced parts. I come from a rural town, so it feels good to be able to give back to those who have provided for me. It just feels good to know that we are helping to improve someone’s quality of life,” said Burchett. “We’re going to know how to fix the equipment ourselves, if problems arise while we’re with patients,” Bickwermert added. “Dr. Kitzman’s already told us about things that he’s gone through as a physical therapist himself and how he’s had to make those minor adjustments.” CARAT’s database of no-cost or low-cost refurbished items, including walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, canes, quad canes, crutches, and hospital beds, can be accessed at katsnet.at4all.com.

Team-based research and cross-disciplinary collaborations are necessary to tackle complex and multifaceted problems. The Rehabilitation Sciences Doctoral Program’s Spring 2013 Colloquium brought awareness to the collaborative research projects underway within the field of rehabilitation. “The Colloquium was a terrific opportunity to highlight the vibrant interprofessional research that is being pursued by faculty and students,” said Carl Mattacola, PhD, ATC, Division Director and Associate Professor of Athletic Training. “The translational nature of our research and the immediate applicability to improve patient care was evident.” Aging and Laryngeal Muscles UK Health Sciences: Communication Sciences & Disorders, Athletic Training Joseph Stemple, PhD, Richard Andreatta, PhD, Maria Dietrich, PhD UK Medicine: Physiology Colleen McMullen, MA, Paco Andrade, PhD “In my estimation, it is no longer possible to view science as a solitary endeavor. The questions we are asking today are too complex to be addressed with only one type of strategy. For example, as our research area in voice and speech has matured toward asking more complex questions related to aging effects on voice production or the effects of training in an injured system, the need to assemble a team of collaborators with expertise ranging from cell biology, to muscle physiology, to speech biomechanics has become vital to the success of our overall research program. Together our collective experiences and varied expertise have allowed us to discover a deeper appreciation of the nature of and care for the human voice than would have been possible alone.” Richard Andreatta, PhD, Communication Sciences and Disorders Contribution of Tongue Muscle Force to Infant Feeding UK Health Sciences: Communication Sciences & Disorders, Athletic Training, Physical Therapy,Rehabilitation Sciences Doctoral Program Gilson Capilouto, PhD, Tim Butterfield, PhD, Esther Dupont-Versteegdon, PhD, Thomas Cunningham, PhD, Eric Frederick, MS UK Medicine: Pediatric Radiology, Neonatology Harigovinda R.

UK was a special place for Barbara, where she cheered on the Cats every home game and eventually met her husband, Michael. Originally from Boone County, Barbara’s career has taken her all over the country to finally settle in Austin, TX at Southwest Texas State University in 1986 where she has been ever since. In 1991 she completed her PhD studies in Austin. Why do you continue to support the College of Health Sciences and the Physical Therapy program? “Without my PT education and the mentorship, friendship, and colleagues from KY I would not have accomplished what I have in my career. It all started with the excellent foundation that was provided by Mac, Dick Borden, Judy Carr Canfield and Nancy Patton. Those four faculty were not just teachers, they were role models and mentors. Each of the three (not Mac) left UK to become leaders of other PT education programs. They inspired, challenged, guided and supported me over the years. We had an introduction to what it means to be a professional and part of that is to give back to the community. This was also inspired by my parents who were always involved in the community where I grew up – Hebron, KY. It was a way of life for us and an expectation that to get something we need to give even more. Mac also inspired us to be involved with the profession, requiring that we attend professional meetings, meet the leaders of our profession and get connected. That made a huge impact on me. And finally, I am a big UK basketball fan!” What was your favorite part of your time spent in the Physical Therapy program? Any special memories you’d like share? “Wow – after all these years not sure that I can tell you much about the favorite part, but can tell you about some of the best; it was the educational experiences provided not just by the faculty but by the community. We had incredible teachers who were in the ‘real world.’ We also experienced some very challenging courses, the first being anatomy with the medical students; the PT students always did quite well in that course. Those instructors were wonderful and challenging! We had pathology with the dental students and physiology with the nursing students. We learned so much about the team approach because we were involved in it from day one. We learned about practice since we would have class in the clinic, either during patient care or just after since we shared those facilities. It was a small class and in a small environment. We learned to work together and get along regardless, great lifelong lessons.” Save The Date UK Medical Laboratory Science 80th Anniversary event Party like it’s 1933!

Connection | College of Health Sciences 2012 Hall of Fame Inductees Alumni News Holly Johnson Holly Johnson graduated from UK’s Physical Therapy program in 1986. She later went on to earn a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University in 2005. “My experience at UK was awesome. Twenty seven years ago I was privileged to receive the best physical therapy educational background possible. Dr. Art Nitz, Lavonne Yeager, Richard McDougall, Debbie Brown, Debbie Kelly, and Brenda Gosney were a few of my excellent professors who are still role models to this day,” Dr. Johnson said. “Being from southeastern Kentucky, it was imperative that I form relationships with health care professionals that would serve as great referral sources for my future patients. The UK program offered both a cutting edge, state of the art PT education and professional mentoring that has continued throughout my career. Bringing the highest quality physical therapy services to eastern Kentucky through our company, PT Pros, has been my life’s privilege.” A life-long resident of Harlan, KY, Dr. Johnson has over 25 years of experience as a physical therapist and clinic director and has been a managing shareholder of PT Pros for more than 20 years. She has also served as a Clinical Educator for several PT programs – including the University of Kentucky, Bellarmine University, and LSU – and, in fact, Dr. Johnson’s colleagues often comment on her gifts as a highly motivating educator and captivating speaker. “I have always viewed my role as a physical therapist as a ministry of sorts, one that has allowed me the opportunity to encourage and educate patients to take an active role in their health and physical wellbeing,” Dr. Johnson said. Dr. Johnson’s areas of interest include manual treatment of spine, sports medicine, orthopedics, chronic pain management, industrial rehab and women’s health. Since 2010, Dr. Johnson has worked closely with Global Health Outreach – a ministry branch of the Christian Medical and Dental Association – to develop a first-of-its-kind physical therapy outreach program in Ometepe, Nicaragua. University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences 15 Connection | College of Health Sciences Student News Workshop Uses Magic Tricks in Therapeutic Settings by Ann Blackford, UK Office of Public Relations Magic shows often involve spectacle, drama, danger, personality, and of course, pulling a rabbit out of a hat. However, on February 14, at the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences, two performers put their own unique and creative spin on magic by demonstrating how it can be used to assist with healing in a therapeutic setting. Kevin and Cindy Spencer, known professionally as The Spencers, are among the world’s most recognized magical performers. The Spencers production is a unique fusion of magic and illusion, humor and mystery, and persona and personality. With a background in clinical psychology, Kevin, who is considered the leading authority on the functional and academic benefits of the art of illusion likes to say, “I was going to help people’s minds, but now I just mess with them.” The Spencers held a workshop for UK physical therapy students and faculty in the Wethington Building. In addition, “A Healing of Magic” Workshop was also held on February 16, at the Lexington Convention Center. The course is fully accredited and is designed for occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants and other therapy professionals including physical, speech and recreation therapists. “This presentation introduces the students to alternative exercise approaches that are fun and challenging that will keep the patient’s interest and encourage them to practice, thus helping them achieve their rehabilitation goals,” said Tony English, Associate Professor and Division Director in the Division of Physical Therapy in the UK College of Health Sciences. The Spencers show, Theatre of Illusion, stands in stark contrast to the traditional magic show. Spencer sees it not as a stage full of tricks used to fool people, but as a way to inspire viewers with a sense of wonder. Audience members do not simply watch the show, but are also invited to participate in the magic. Using magic much like a storyteller uses words, Spencer fuses this family-friendly production with a gamut of emotions. And with the skills of a master showman, he creates a world where nothing is impossible and anything can happen. Kevin Spencer has committed his life to magic both on stage and off. When he’s not working with his crew to set up a show, Spencer can be found spreading the word about the therapeutic and educational benefits of learning magic for persons with a variety of disabilities. Their workshops include presentations such as “Healing of Magic,” which uses simple magic tricks as a form of rehabilitative therapy and “Hocus Focus,” which integrates magic tricks into the classroom as a way of motivating students in the learning process. Both projects have an international reputation with published research in leading scientific journals. Spencer received the Harry Chapin Award for Contributions to Humanity in recognition of his work in health care and education.

In a year-long partnership with Maxwell Spanish Immersion Magnet School, College of Health Sciences faculty members Randa Remer and DeShana Collett worked closely with Maxwell’s principal, who encourages kids to think about careers in health care. The goal of the program is to give students an early understanding of different professions, to help them understand career opportunities and to give them a chance to discover their interests. “We’d like to bring health care into the classroom and start to pipeline them,” said Remer, Assistant Dean of Student Affairs in the College of Health Sciences. “It’s both about the career and about sending a message about being stronger, healthy individuals.” The Pipeline Project integrates information about different health professions into Maxwell’s fourth grade science curriculum, which includes spending a month studying the science involved with a specific profession, as well as learning about what the associated health care professionals do on a daily basis. At the end of the month, students and practitioners within the specific field visit the school to talk to the students, answer any questions they from Clinical Nutrition, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Medical Laboratory Science, Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant Studies in the College of Health Sciences and students from the UK College of Pharmacy led sessions at Maxwell. Valerie Sleeth, a second year graduate student in the Physician Assistant Studies program participated because she enjoys spending time with kids. “I didn’t know the PA profession existed until I’d almost finished my bachelor’s degree, and I feel that giving kids a hands-on opportunity to see what careers are out there is a great way to help them begin thinking about their future now,” Sleeth said. Maja Redzic, a nutritional sciences graduate student, is one of eight graduate students in the program who presented a series of short sessions on the role of nutrition researchers, dietitians and educators in the community. may have, and provide learning activities. Last December, UK College of Dentistry students demonstrated to the Maxwell students how different substances affect tooth enamel by displaying egg shells immersed in different substances that our teeth frequently come in contact with. During the spring semester, students and faculty “We discussed body composition including differences between fat and muscle and will have hands-on models for the students to use,” said Redzic. “We also measured body composition of some of the students to determine percentage of muscle mass and fat mass. We discussed the importance of nutrition and the USDA’s ‘My Plate’ initiative through fun learning activities. Additionally, we taught the basics of how to read food labels and provide models of sugar and fat in common fast food meals for the students to gain a better understanding of what is really in their food. The students experienced wearing ‘sand bellies’ to gain an understanding of what it feels like to carry around an additional five pounds.” Collett, Assistant Professor in the Division of Physician Assistant Studies, said they miss out if they don’t catch the children early and get them excited about careers in the health professions. “We want to draw a connection between science and math and the health care industry. I hope they’ll be able to draw on their own experience from the activities and see how it will impact their future health choices and possible health careers,” she said. Director of the UK Division of Physical Therapy, Tony English, said, “Not only is this a great opportunity to help young children learn about health care careers and their own health, it is an opportunity for our current students to interact with children and gain experience in engaging with children on a topic that will matter to them for the rest of their lives.” In May, the Maxwell students paid a visit to UK’s campus to experience classroom and clinic settings and further demonstrations of health care careers.
