Corn on the cob: Get your grill on
It’s simple, fun, and downright fabulous BY TOM YATES
ire. Heat. Smoke. It’s summertime and the grilling is easy. Can anything possibly be better than grilled locally grown fresh corn on the cob slathered with melted butter and doused with salt? Yep. Elotes. Mexican street corn. Smeared with mayo or crema, rolled in cojita cheese, sprinkled with ground chili, and brightened with fresh lime juice, elotes ups the ante on our beloved grilled summer corn candy. It’s simple, fun, and downright fabulous. Don’t let the ingredients form a roadblock. Sure, there’s the whole mayo thing. Can’t tolerate mayo? Use crema, sour cream, or butter. Want to take a leap of faith? Try a teeny weeny bit of jarred mayo or whip up a batch of airy, tangy, creamy, and easy homemade mayo. Don’t want to bother with sourcing cojita cheese? Crumbled feta or good quality parmesan are great substitutes. Celebrate summer. Snag a few ears of fantastic corn and fire up the grill. Elotes. Mayo. Scratch made mayonnaise is unbelievably simple to throw together. After cracking 1 whole Elmwood Stock Farm organic egg into a small mason jar, I added 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons neutral canola oil, 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, a quarter of a teaspoon dried mustard, salt, pepper, and a pinch of sugar. Using a handheld immersion blender, I creamed the mix before slowly drizzling in an additional 5 tablespoons canola oil. Within seconds, it emulsified into a creamy dream. A mayonnaise miracle. I slid the mayo into the refrigerator to chill and fired up the grill. Corn. There are no rules when it comes to grilling corn. Shucked or unshucked? Soaked or dried? Wrapped or naked? It’s really doesn’t matter, if you keep an eye on it during the process. The caramelized toasty bits are fine. Cinders, not so much. I was lucky enough to stumble across
fresh (newly harvested) Lincoln County corn at the farmers market. Still damp from the morning harvest, the fresh corn was a total win. So, I’m a husk on kind of boy when it comes to grilling corn. The silks are another matter. Some folks don’t bother removing the silks before grilling because they burn away from the heat and flames. Well, I guess I fall in the middle. You see, I grew up on a farm with a zero tolerance for corn silks. My father had kitchen drawers filled with very odd corn silk removing gadgets. No silks allowed. Period. Ever. Although I’m not quite that fussy, I removed some of the silks. After peeling back the husks, I scraped away most of the silks, loosely formed the husks back over the corn, and tied the ends with a few wayward husk scraps. When the fire died down, I spread out the glowing coals, and tossed the ears onto the grill. While I didn’t bother soaking the corn, I did spritz the ears with water after they hit the heat. I poured myself a glass of wine, sat down next to the inferno, and turned the ears of corn every few minutes. As the husks burned away, bits of corn kernels singed and caramelized from the heat. After 10 minutes or so, I pulled the corn from the grill and scraped away the burned husks before peeling back the inner husks to reveal the candied corn. Steamed. Charred. Caramelized. Gorgeous. While the corn was still warm, I brushed it with the lime spiked mayo, tumbled cojita cheese over the top, dusted it with ancho chili powder, and finished with fresh lime zest before scattering lime wedges and fresh cilantro to the side. Crunchy sweet summer corn. Light creamy mayo. Salty cojita cheese. Spicy ancho chili. Bright fresh lime. Perfect. Not into wearing corn all over your face, hands, hair, and elbows? Try esquites, the daintier street corn salad version. Simply cut the corn off the cobs after grilling and toss the kernels with all the remaining good stuff. Summer has arrived. It’s time to get your grill on.

UK receives $4.6 million in funding as part of quality health initiative The University of Kentucky is partnering with the Indiana University School of Medicine in a $46 million grant-funded initiative with the aim of improving healthcare while lowering costs. UK will receive $4.6 million in funding to lead the Kentucky arm of a four-state quality improvement effort funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network trains and deploys “quality improvement advisors” to transform the way over 10 million patients are cared for by more than 15,500 medical professionals throughout Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky. The network is a collaboration among nearly three dozen university and state-connected partners designed to reduce unnecessary visits and testing, while potentially saving $1 billion. This network will provide technical assistance to equip approximately 1,875 Kentucky clinicians with tools, information, and network support needed to improve quality of care, increase patients’ access to information, and spend healthcare dollars more wisely. “Changes in reimbursement by Medicare and Medicaid are affecting frontline physicians, administrators and health care leaders in new ways,” said Dr. Malaz Boustani, principal investigator of
GLPTN. “We are pleased to have the University of Kentucky on board to provide dedicated support to health care professionals across Kentucky to improve the quality and value of healthcare.” As a member of the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network, UK’s Kentucky Regional Extension Center and partners will support more than 15,500 clinicians to expand their quality improvement capacity, learn from one another, and achieve the common goals of improved care, better health, and reduced cost. The network will provide implementation science, process improvement and personalized population health management to help participating clinicians meet the initiative’s phases of transformation and associated milestones. “This work showcases the leadership and innovation of our research and will support Kentucky’s health care providers to remain on the frontline of the changes ahead in health care,” said Dr. Michael Karpf, UK executive vice president for health affairs. “It will allow us to improve patient care and outcomes and improve overall health care value across this region.” This initiative is part of federal efforts to transition Medicare spending away from volume-driven payment to value-based, patient-centered health care services and payment.
UK and Jockeys’ Guild unveil concussion protocol pilot study The University of Kentucky and the Jockeys’ Guild has announced a three-year pilot study, supported by a broad cross-section of Thoroughbred organizations, that is designed to evolve into the first comprehensive concussion management protocol for jockeys. Carl Mattacola, the director of the Graduate Athletic Training Program and a professor in the College of Health Sciences at the University of Kentucky, will oversee the study at all of Kentucky’s thoroughbred racetracks: Turfway Park, Keeneland Race Course, Churchill Downs, Ellis Park and Kentucky Downs. It is scheduled to begin this summer. “We want to give the jockeys who suffer head injuries the best science has to offer, and an important first step towards that goal is to generate data from which an appropriate management protocol can be developed,” said Mattacola. “This project will leverage the full resources and knowledge base of UK’s Sports Medicine Research Carl Mattacola Institute (SMRI) and the Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center (SCoBIRC) to help create the first national protocol for concussion management in jockeys.” For the study, jockeys will undergo a Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT 3) test to develop a baseline score so that pre- and post-fall responses can be compared. The SCAT3 is an instrument used to assess sign/symptoms, physical, and cognitive function for concussion. A specialized health care provider trained in concussion assessment and sport injury will be available at each track to perform the assessments. Mattacola said the jockeys will be required to have an active account with the Jockey Health Information System, which stores medical and injury information on riders and will serve as a database for the study

UK student brings wearable tech to operating room Surgeons and anesthesiologists prepped for their next bariatrics surgery: scrubs, masks, gowns, gloves? Check. And then the software engineer geared up: Google Glass, connected and fully charged? Check. They headed into the operating room. The software engineer was University of Kentucky computer science student Zack Anderson, who watched the surgery from the corner as Dr. Alex Gandsas and an anesthesiologist wore Google Glass technology mounted on their eyeglasses. In the top right corner of the right lenses, they saw the patient’s vital signs. Anderson watched as his work was put to the ultimate test, and it passed. “It’s one thing to just build an application and just put it to the side,” Anderson said. “But it’s another thing to actually go into the place that you’ve designed it for and see people using it. The look on people’s faces when they use this application, I mean, it was just incredible.” The goal was to reduce the distraction surgeons and anesthesiologists must often face as they deal with many aspects of an operation. Applying wearable technology to glasses allows them to keep their eyes on the patient and monitor vitals at the same time. “We found out that the anesthesiologist can get distracted easily,” Anderson said.
UK computer science student Zack Anderson (middle) speaking with AAMC Chief of Anesthesia Dr. Mike Webb (left) and Director of AAMC’s Weight Loss and Metabolic Surgery Program Dr. Alex Gandsas (right) on the day of the surgery. PHOTO PROVIDED BY ANNE ARUNDEL MEDICAL CENTER.
“He has a lot of things that he has to do.” So Anderson, working with Dr. Gandsas of the Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) in Maryland, built the programs needed to connect a computer to an anesthesia machine and Google Glass technology to the computer. And eventually, they thought, why not have both the anesthesiologists and the surgeons wearing the technology?
In May, after a series of tests, the team deployed their technology for surgery for the first time. “He’s (the user) not looking across the room to try and, you know, figure out what these vital signs are,” Anderson said. “He can just focus on the patient and be able to get those vital signs in real time.” Here’s how it works: a computer is hooked up to a particular type of anesthesia
machine from GE Healthcare to receive the data. Anderson wrote code that essentially pulls specific vital signs — heart rate, blood pressure and blood oxidation level, all crucial to a patient’s health — about every second. The Google Glass technology is connected to the computer and once the computer has the data, Anderson broadcasts it to the Google Glass lenses. “I think that wearable computer technology has a place in today’s operating room to close the communication gap between team members while providing an extra layer of safety for our patients,” said Dr. Gandsas, who is a bariatric surgeon and director of the AAMC Weight Loss and Metabolic Program. Anderson pointed out that although the future of Google Glass is uncertain, wearable technologies are sure to revolutionize health care. Whether it’s Google Glass, Oculus Rift or Microsoft’s HoloLens; “it could be anything.” Believe it or not, Anderson had never really worked with wearable technologies before. The venture began as an undergraduate research project his freshman year, working with UK Department of Computer Science Chair and Professor Brent Seales. When Dr. Gandsas contacted Seales about the idea for wearable technology in the operating room, Seales called on Anderson for an assist.
