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.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (August 27, 2020) – Rural and African American communities face a number of health challenges – diabetes, lung cancer and heart disease being among the most common.

Dr. Lovoria Williams in the UK College of Nursing is surveying the congregants in Appalachian and central Kentucky churches to develop interventions designed to help people in those communities adapt their behavior and adopt healthy lifestyle choices. Additionally, she’s examining the effect of COVID-19 on those communities and the impact it has had on the congregants’ mental, emotional and financial well-being.

On this episode of Behind the Blue, Dr. Williams discusses her research, how it’s being received in those rural communities, what insight they hope to gain from the data and more.
