The UK College of Health Sciences has partnered with Child Development Center of the Bluegrass to offer pediatric therapy services at CDCB. In August, CHS assumed management of all pediatric therapy services, now provided as UK Pediatric Therapies at Child Development Center of the Bluegrass. This partnership provides opportunities for better integration of CDCB with UK’s academic and clinical resources, as well as additional community engagement opportunities for CHS and CDCB.
In May, University Senate voted unanimously to formally approve the creation of the UK Sports Medicine Research Institute (SMRI). The SMRI represents a joint initiative between the College of Health Sciences, College of Medicine, UK HealthCare, and UK Athletics and represents collaborating faculty from seven Colleges across the University.
