Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, and opioid addiction is a primary driver of this epidemic. The American Society of Addiction Medicine reports that an estimated 23% of individuals who use heroin develop an opioid addiction.

On this episode of Behind the Blue, we're joined by Dr. Catherine Martin, the Dr. Laurie L. Humphries Chair in Child Psychiatry at UK. Dr. Martin is currently working on research grants investigating individual differences related to drug effects in children, adolescents, and adults.

The UK Department of Psychiatry's clinical services include a model clinic for the treatment of adolescent substance abuse or adolescents at high risk of substance abuse. The clinic operates within a treatment program entitled Adolescent Health and Recovery Treatment and Training (AHARTT). Dr. Martin joins us to discuss the work the clinic and the AHARTT program has performed, and the benefits provided to healthcare workers across the state.

Financial markets and political conversations were roiled in recent weeks by the decision of voters in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. The so-called Brexit referendum has left numerous questions for policymakers and pundits alike to stew over.

To help bring clarity and context to the conversation, this edition of Behind the Blue discusses Brexit with Kathleen Montgomery, an associate professor in UK’s Patterson School for Diplomacy. Montgomery specializes in development and international economics, among other areas, and on “Behind the Blue” she discussions the implications for the referendum on the future of the EU and even the economic impact on the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

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.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 17, 2016) – 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 new 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 first podcast, appropriately enough, focuses on election-year politics and the presidential election. To provide insight and context on an extraordinary and historic election, UK political science professor and elections expert Stephen Voss discusses at length the forces shaping this year’s presidential race, his insights on both the Democratic and Republican parties, and an individual candidate or two, who may be making headlines. 

Voss -- https://polisci.as.uky.edu/users/dsvoss -- is quoted extensively in state and national publications for his views on politics. He is seen as a dispassionate and in-depth observer of the political scene, attributes on full display in this first episode of “Behind the Blue.”
