- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Welcome to the fourth episode of The Way Podcast, the official podcast of UK's College of Health Sciences, where we highlight the amazing people that make our college special. Here at UK, the College of Health Sciences is your Gateway to the Health Professions.
This is an extra special episode, one where we just happened to be interviewing an amazing graduate, and we thought, 'Hey, let's make this into a podcast.' So we did.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Kristen Maynard graduated from our Communication Sciences and Disorders program with a degree in Speech Pathology. Ever since UK speech pathologists helped her own family overcome their challenges, the Pikeville native always knew where she wanted to go to school — and what she wanted to do. Now, armed with her degree, as well as a certificate in Telehealth, Kristen has a goal to stay in the region and give back, just like those UK experts helped her family long ago.
In honor of Better Hearing and Speech Month, let's meet one of our newest alumni, Kristen Maynard.
