Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

The Zika virus is an infectious disease spread through mosquito bites or through sexual contact with someone with the Zika virus. Currently, Zika virus transmission is ongoing in many Caribbean, Central, and South American countries. Although many people who contract Zika have mild or no symptoms, pregnant women are at high risk for complications because the virus has been linked to microcephaly, a neurological disorder characterized by an abnormally small head and potentially fatal developmental issues in newborns.

UK HealthCare is urging Kentuckians to take precautions to prevent mosquito bites this summer, and to be aware of travel warnings and evolving information regarding the Zika virus.

On this episode of 'Behind The Blue', Dr. Derek Forster (UK HealthCare Medical Director for Infection Prevention and Control) discusses the impact of Zika virus on Kentucky, and what the community at-large can do for education and preparedness for the disease.
