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. (December 16, 2021) – The UK HealthCare Transplant Center has a history of success and second chances. Since 1964 when they performed the first kidney transplant in Kentucky, the Transplant Center has emerged as one of the top hospitals in the country for a variety of organ transplants.

The Center also has a number of locations across the Commonwealth where patients can undergo screening, have their pre- and post-transplant follow appointments, and meet regularly with their providers while still staying close to home.

Dr. Meera Gupta is a transplant surgeon and clinician-scientist at the UK HealthCare Transplant Center. On this episode of ‘Behind the Blue’, Dr. Gupta talks about her time at the Center, the benefit for patients and their families to have these surgeries done right here in Kentucky, the milestones and future outlook for the Center, and more.
