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. (February 25, 2021) – 30 years ago, the University of Kentucky and its College of Medicine established the UK Center of Excellence in Rural Health.

Since that time, CERH, which also serves as the federally designated Kentucky Office of Rural Health, has been supporting the health and well-being of rural Kentuckians by promoting access to health services and educational opportunities.

Headquartered in Hazard and with employees located across the Commonwealth, CERH is directed by Fran Feltner. On this episode of the ‘Behind the Blue’ podcast, UKPR’s Carl Nathe talks with Feltner about the important work being carried out by the center, the challenges of working in rural health versus being in more populous areas, how that work has adapted to change over three decades,  and more.
