LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 10, 2004) -- The University of Kentucky Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Program will host its annual statewide AHEC meeting Nov. 10 and 11. UK President Lee T. Todd Jr. and Jim Norton, AHEC program administrator, will host an invitation-only reception for participants on Nov. 10. This is an opportunity for the many UK faculty and staff who work with the AHEC program to meet informally with AHEC staff from around the state.
“This meeting is a major event for us each year,” Norton said, “and we are just really pleased that the president has invited us to the Main Building for the social event.”
