We’re celebrating 40 wonderful years! The College of Health Sciences started out as the College of Allied Health Professions in 1966. We were the first of our kind in Kentucky and only one of 12 in the nation. Dr. Joseph Hamburg assumed the deanship with three bachelor degree programs including medical technology and physical therapy. A snapshot taken twenty years later, in 1986 showed a college that was housed in several makeshift facilities and offered two master’s degree programs, five bachelor’s degree programs, and one certificate program. However, the dean at that time, Dr. Thomas Robinson had a vision for the college – that it become a national leader in graduate education in a state-of-theart facility. Over the next 20 years, new programs were added, programs were expanded to include master’s and doctoral programs and we were successful in securing a wonderful new building in 2002.

We are also reaching for national prominence in the area of research and have set the record for grant dollars received. In 2004-2005, the researchers in the college secured $776,009 dollars in external funding. This year, that number has reached more than 4.4 million. What is most exciting is that most of the external funding comes from the National Institute In 2004-2005, the researchers of Health and this funding will allow us to move forward very in the college quickly in the national rankings.

Today, all college activities are housed under one roof. We now have nine disciplines with programs ranging from bachelor’s to doctoral level. Our students work in clinics, laboratories and classrooms as they prepare to positively impact health care through clinical practice, research, and teaching.

Where do we go from here? We have accomplished so much over the last four secured $776,009 decades, but we have so much more to do. We are dollars in external well on our way to ensuring funding. This year, our position as a nationally that number has recognized college of health reached more than sciences. 4.4 million. As we move forward, our first priority is to maintain the quality of our educational programs. We aim to be nationally recognized for educating front-line entry-level practitioners as well as preparing the academic leaders of tomorrow. We do this by continuing to recruit the highest quality student, hiring excellent faculty, growing programs, and constantly evaluating our programs.

After Krista cared for a mother who had been in labor for two days and lost her anacephalic baby, she is even more determined to provide PA services internationally. Krista said, “The trauma that the poor mom went through, and how easily it could have been avoided with some prenatal care and vitamins really brought home the message. These things are so inexpensive and so important, and it makes me want to educate women about the simple things regarding their health.”

Alumni Hall of Fame Induction The UK College of Health Sciences will celebrate the induction of two alumni into its Hall of Fame October 13, 2006! Mark your calendars and don’t miss your opportunity to honor these individuals. Karen Waters Clancy, MBA is employed as the Associate Director of the University of Kentucky University Health Service, and she recently became an adjunct instructor in UK’s College of Public Health. She teaches management and finance courses in the College of Public Health graduate program and works hard at University Health Services to provide innovative, effective, quality services to students, employees, and patients at UK. Karen said, “I have enjoyed helping people improve their lives by helping them to get better access to health care.” Karen completed her bachelor of science degree in Health Administration, now called Clinical Leadership Management, from UK’s College of Health Sciences in 1991 and her master’s degree in Business Administration from Morehead University. Currently, she is working toward her Ph.D. in Education Policy and Evaluation Studies with a concentration in Higher Education from UK’s College of Education. Karen also has an associate in applied science degree in Medical Laboratory Technology from Somerset Community College. She is a licensed Medical Technologist (MT) and has a Medical Laboratory Technology license (MLT). Karen said, “After working in public health for nine years, I came to the University of Kentucky because I wanted to go into an administration career to make a difference in the health care delivery system.” Prior to her enrollment at UK, Karen was a medical technologist at the Lake Cumberland District Health Department and at the University of Kentucky Hospital. After graduation, Karen continued to work at the University of Kentucky in many roles, including Director of the Office of Communications at UK’s Chandler Medical

Center. In 1999, she left the university and served as Director of Consulting and the Center of Learning at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital until 2002. She then returned to UK as the administrator of the Lucille Parker Markey Cancer Center. Karen said, “I left for three years, but I missed the University so I came back. I have a passion for UK – it’s my home.” In 2004, she became the Associate Director of University Health Service. Karen is truly honored to be chosen by her peers as a Hall of Fame inductee. She said, “Education and a positive support network truly make the difference in a person’s quality of life. The faculty and staff at the college provide valuable student support and excellence in education, and I am privileged to have had the opportunity to earn my undergraduate degree there.” Donna Horn, Ph.D., MS, CCC-SLP started a private practice 27 years ago while working on her Ph.D., and it has grown into a thriving practice meeting the needs of individuals across Kentucky. The practice is a multidisciplinary rehabilitation facility made up of 45 physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, case managers, developmental interventionists, and speech language pathologists working with all individuals, from birth to geriatrics. Donna said, “Private practice allows me to see clients, which I love, and do research in a setting with wonderful people I can refer to.” Donna earned her first master’s degree in Communication Disorders from UK’s College of Education. After working 2 years in Cincinnati at Mercy Hospital, she returned to UK to get her masters degree in psychology. She went on to earn her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology, focusing on cognitive/developmental psychology. Donna found speech language pathology to be particularly interesting because of its problem solving approach. She is energized by the challenges of understanding the Page

many facets of each client she works with. Donna said, “Today, I continue to enjoy learning in my own area of interest, which is language and reading.” She said, “That evolving and rapidly changing base of knowledge is exciting and invigorating and keeps me reading on a daily basis.” Clinical research has continued to be of great interest to Donna. Currently, she is working with middle school, high school, and college students to look at literacy from a balanced multifaceted approach. This research combines strategies with curricular demands in order to examine development in the areas of vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Ultimately, Donna enjoys the balance she is able to maintain between clinical, research, and managerial work. She said, “I can’t ever imagine giving up the clinical work though.” Signifying her excellent contributions to the area of speech language pathology, Donna has received the Clinical Achievement Award from the Kentucky Speech-Language- and Hearing Association. Donna is flattered to be chosen as a Hall of Fame inductee. She said, “I know some of the people chosen before me, and I feel humbled and honored to be included in this group.” (Continued from Pg. 1)

Alumni Hall of Fame Induction The UK College of Health Sciences will celebrate the induction of two alumni into its Hall of Fame October 13, 2006! Mark your calendars and don’t miss your opportunity to honor these individuals. Karen Waters Clancy, MBA is employed as the Associate Director of the University of Kentucky University Health Service, and she recently became an adjunct instructor in UK’s College of Public Health. She teaches management and finance courses in the College of Public Health graduate program and works hard at University Health Services to provide innovative, effective, quality services to students, employees, and patients at UK. Karen said, “I have enjoyed helping people improve their lives by helping them to get better access to health care.” Karen completed her bachelor of science degree in Health Administration, now called Clinical Leadership Management, from UK’s College of Health Sciences in 1991 and her master’s degree in Business Administration from Morehead University. Currently, she is working toward her Ph.D. in Education Policy and Evaluation Studies with a concentration in Higher Education from UK’s College of Education. Karen also has an associate in applied science degree in Medical Laboratory Technology from Somerset Community College. She is a licensed Medical Technologist (MT) and has a Medical Laboratory Technology license (MLT). Karen said, “After working in public health for nine years, I came to the University of Kentucky because I wanted to go into an administration career to make a difference in the health care delivery system.” Prior to her enrollment at UK, Karen was a medical technologist at the Lake Cumberland District Health Department and at the University of Kentucky Hospital. After graduation, Karen continued to work at the University of Kentucky in many roles, including Director of the Office of Communications at UK’s Chandler Medical

Center. In 1999, she left the university and served as Director of Consulting and the Center of Learning at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital until 2002. She then returned to UK as the administrator of the Lucille Parker Markey Cancer Center. Karen said, “I left for three years, but I missed the University so I came back. I have a passion for UK – it’s my home.” In 2004, she became the Associate Director of University Health Service. Karen is truly honored to be chosen by her peers as a Hall of Fame inductee. She said, “Education and a positive support network truly make the difference in a person’s quality of life. The faculty and staff at the college provide valuable student support and excellence in education, and I am privileged to have had the opportunity to earn my undergraduate degree there.” Donna Horn, Ph.D., MS, CCC-SLP started a private practice 27 years ago while working on her Ph.D., and it has grown into a thriving practice meeting the needs of individuals across Kentucky. The practice is a multidisciplinary rehabilitation facility made up of 45 physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, case managers, developmental interventionists, and speech language pathologists working with all individuals, from birth to geriatrics. Donna said, “Private practice allows me to see clients, which I love, and do research in a setting with wonderful people I can refer to.” Donna earned her first master’s degree in Communication Disorders from UK’s College of Education. After working 2 years in Cincinnati at Mercy Hospital, she returned to UK to get her masters degree in psychology. She went on to earn her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology, focusing on cognitive/developmental psychology. Donna found speech language pathology to be particularly interesting because of its problem solving approach. She is energized by the challenges of understanding the Page

many facets of each client she works with. Donna said, “Today, I continue to enjoy learning in my own area of interest, which is language and reading.” She said, “That evolving and rapidly changing base of knowledge is exciting and invigorating and keeps me reading on a daily basis.” Clinical research has continued to be of great interest to Donna. Currently, she is working with middle school, high school, and college students to look at literacy from a balanced multifaceted approach. This research combines strategies with curricular demands in order to examine development in the areas of vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Ultimately, Donna enjoys the balance she is able to maintain between clinical, research, and managerial work. She said, “I can’t ever imagine giving up the clinical work though.” Signifying her excellent contributions to the area of speech language pathology, Donna has received the Clinical Achievement Award from the Kentucky Speech-Language- and Hearing Association. Donna is flattered to be chosen as a Hall of Fame inductee. She said, “I know some of the people chosen before me, and I feel humbled and honored to be included in this group.” (Continued from Pg. 1)

independence. She is currently funded by the NIH to study stem cell activity in muscle regeneration. Dr. Peterson currently chairs the Cellular Mechanisms of Aging and Development NIH study section and is the Associate Editor of the Journal of Gerontology: Biological Sciences. Dr. Peterson received her B.S. at the University of Notre Dame and earned her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia, followed by two postdoctoral fellowships, the first at the National Eye Institute at the NIH and the second at Stanford University School of Medicine.

We’re celebrating 40 wonderful years! The College of Health Sciences started out as the College of Allied Health Professions in 1966. We were the first of our kind in Kentucky and only one of 12 in the nation. Dr. Joseph Hamburg assumed the deanship with three bachelor degree programs including medical technology and physical therapy. A snapshot taken twenty years later, in 1986 showed a college that was housed in several makeshift facilities and offered two master’s degree programs, five bachelor’s degree programs, and one certificate program. However, the dean at that time, Dr. Thomas Robinson had a vision for the college – that it become a national leader in graduate education in a state-of-theart facility. Over the next 20 years, new programs were added, programs were expanded to include master’s and doctoral programs and we were successful in securing a wonderful new building in 2002.

We are also reaching for national prominence in the area of research and have set the record for grant dollars received. In 2004-2005, the researchers in the college secured $776,009 dollars in external funding. This year, that number has reached more than 4.4 million. What is most exciting is that most of the external funding comes from the National Institute In 2004-2005, the researchers of Health and this funding will allow us to move forward very in the college quickly in the national rankings.

Today, all college activities are housed under one roof. We now have nine disciplines with programs ranging from bachelor’s to doctoral level. Our students work in clinics, laboratories and classrooms as they prepare to positively impact health care through clinical practice, research, and teaching.

Where do we go from here? We have accomplished so much over the last four secured $776,009 decades, but we have so much more to do. We are dollars in external well on our way to ensuring funding. This year, our position as a nationally that number has recognized college of health reached more than sciences. 4.4 million. As we move forward, our first priority is to maintain the quality of our educational programs. We aim to be nationally recognized for educating front-line entry-level practitioners as well as preparing the academic leaders of tomorrow. We do this by continuing to recruit the highest quality student, hiring excellent faculty, growing programs, and constantly evaluating our programs.
