Office of the President September 11,2007
1.          Students Return to Campus as UK's 2007-08 Academic Year Begins
More than 27,000 students turned UK into a beehive of activity in mid-August as the 2007-08 academic year got under way. Freshmen and upperclassmen were welcomed back with K Week, dozens of events, receptions and registrations, concerts and a convocation, tours and theater, gatherings and guides, socials and spectaculars. All new UK students are required to attend the New Student Induction Ceremony at Memorial Coliseum, where President Lee T. Todd, Jr., Provost Kumble Subbaswamy, our deans, and other faculty and staff commemorated the start of a new school year. Informal get-to-know-you gatherings were held before the convocation so students and parents can meet faculty, staff, administrators, veteran UK students, and UK Parent Advisory Council members.
2.         UK FUSION'S Volunteer Day Shows Students' Commitment to Service
It was a record-breaking day for UK FUSION (UK For Unity and Service in Our Neighborhoods), one of the largest single-day community service projects in the state, when Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry proclaimed it UK FUSION Day. The fifth annual UK FUSION broke all previous records under the leadership of UK senior Amanda Schroeder. At the end of the day, more than 1,300 students, staff, and faculty had worked over 5,000 hours of community service at 63 Lexington neighborhoods, social service agencies, and public facilities, such as parks and museums. UK volunteers stuffed envelopes, pulled weeds, mulched trees, cleaned windows, tilled gardens, painted homes, planted gardens, and organized pantries at adult day care centers, parks, neighborhood centers, museums, hospitals, nature sanctuaries, and homeless shelters throughout Fayette County.
3.         UK Chandler Hospital Wins High Rankings from Two Organizations
The UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital was the only health care facility in the state to be ranked by two leading organizations as among the best in the nation. The hospital was named one of the nation's 100 Top Performance Improvement Leaders by Thomson Healthcare (formerly "Solucient"), an organization that has been identifying America's top-performing hospitals since 1993 and is well-known in the health care industry. UK is the only academic medical center in Kentucky to receive the ranking, which is based on UK Chandler Hospital's continued strong growth in financial performance, operational efficiency, and quality care for patients. For the second time in two years, UK is ranked by Thomson Healthcare among the top 15 academic medical centers in the nation for having faster and more consistent organization-wide improvement than most other


teaching hospitals. The new national ranking came on the heels of U.S. News & World Report s designation of UK Chandler Hospital as one of "America1 s Best Hospitals." Only 173 U.S. hospitals made the list of 5,462 hospitals evaluated. For the first time, three UK1 s programs are recognized by the magazine: gynecology (27), ear, nose and throat (41) and cancer (46).
4.         Foundation's $2.8 Million Grant Creates Public Health Systems Research Center
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has awarded a $2.8 million grant to establish the UK Center for Public Health Systems Research (PHSR). The new center will catalogue and make available new research and resources that will help improve the management of health departments. It will be involved with programs to improve the communication between public health practitioners and the public health research community. The center will also work to increase the number of PHSR researchers by providing training grants to new public health faculty in the nation's schools of public health and support doctoral dissertation research by new researchers coming into the field.
5.         Officials Open $7 Million, 10,000-square-foot Cancer Center in Hazard
State and local officials announced the new $7 million cancer center at Hazard ARH Regional Medical Center to lead the way in the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer in eastern Kentucky. The 10,000-square-foot ARH Cancer Center features a board certified radiation oncologist and a board certified medical oncologist-hematologist with a combined total of nearly 40 years experience treating all forms of cancer, a board certified radiation physicist and certified radiation therapists, and a state-of-the-art radiation therapy treatment planning system.
6.         Gatton College, KSBDC Hold Forum for Businesses on 2010 Equestrian Games
The Kentucky Small Business Development Center (KSBDC), headquartered in the Gatton College of Business and Economics, sponsored a forum for business owners to gather information about the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games and future events held at the Kentucky Horse Park. Participants heard professionals in the horse industry offer their insights regarding potential products and services expected by game attendees and participants. In addition to the KSBDC and the forum participants, the Governor's Office for Minority Empowerment and Commerce Lexington also sponsored the event.
7.         Thirty-eight High School Seniors Are Named 2007 Singletary Scholars
Thirty-eight high school seniors were recently named Otis A. Singletary Scholars for fall 2007 at UK. The Singletary Scholarship is the most prestigious four-year scholarship awarded by UK. The scholarship, named for former UK President Otis A. Singletary, began in 1985 and covers the full cost of tuition, room and board, and a personal stipend for four years of undergraduate study. The scholarship is valued at


approximately $57,000. The Fall 2007 Singletary Scholars were selected from 417 eligible candidates and include 7 National Merit Finalists, 18 valedictorians, 30 Kentucky Governor1 s Scholars, and 1 Governor1 s School for the Arts alumna. To be eligible, students must score 31 or higher on the American College Test (ACT) or 1360 combined math and critical reading scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), and have a minimum high school grade point average of 3.75.

8.         College of Pharmacy Hosts International Symposium on Microencapsulation
The UK College of Pharmacy is hosting the 16th annual International Symposium on Microencapsulation at the Lexington Convention Center this week. The event has attracted researchers from around the world to discuss their work in the use of microcapsules - tiny coated spheres that permit delayed release of medications - and nanotechnology. Researchers from academic institutions in at least 15 countries, including Italy, Israel, Korea, China, and the United Kingdom, are in attendance. The UK conference marks the first time in 12 years that the symposium has been held in the United States. In 1995, the event was hosted by the University of Texas at Austin.
9.         UK Program to Stop Violence Against Women Wins $515,000 in Grants
UK1 s Violence Intervention and Prevention Center has recently been awarded two grants from the federal government to support its efforts toward preventing the perpetration of violence. After an initial two-year funding cycle, the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women, awarded a continuation grant of $214,848 to provide support services to victims while engaging in campus-wide strategies to reduce violence dramatically. The second grant is a $300,000 two-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education will expand the implementation of creative, research-driven strategies to reduce effectively the perpetration of violence.
10.       College of Design's Digital Studio Project Is Featured on the Research Channel
The Resonance House, created by a UK College of Design digital design studio, was featured on the Research Channel last month. The Resonance House is a design-fabricate-assemble single-family residence located on Old Georgetown Street in downtown Lexington. The house was an ongoing project for associate professor Gregory Luhan's digital design studio classes since the concept's inception in January 2005. Students designed and digitally fabricated many components in the house including the light vortex, cabinets, flooring, and storage pieces. The goal of the "art to part" approach was to develop a prototype house for downtown living that boasts both low maintenance and high energy efficiency. The Resonance House is the first in a series of sustainable-design oriented residential projects under Luhan' s direction.


11.        UK Chandler Hospital's Trauma Care Wins Recognition for Quality Care
UK Chandler Hospital's trauma center has again been recognized for providing the highest level of care for adult and pediatric patients. The Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons verified UK Chandler Hospital as a Level 1 center. This achievement recognizes the center's dedication to providing optimal care for injured patients. Verified trauma centers must meet criteria that ensure trauma care and institutional performance as outlined by the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. UK Chandler Hospital is one of only two Level 1 trauma centers serving the needs of Kentuckians. From July 2005 through June 2006, UK doctors and nurses treated nearly 3,000 trauma patients. This is the 5th time the Committee on Trauma has verified UK Chandler Hospital.

The UK Department of Theatre will launch its 80th season of productions to be presented on the historic Guignol and Briggs Theatre stages with the contemporary comedy "Betty's Summer Vacation," by Christopher Durang.

William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" will come to the Guignol stage in November. In February, audiences can celebrate African-American History month with two landmark productions in repertory on the Guignol stage, "A Soldier's Play" by Charles Fuller and "for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf by Ntozake Shange.

The 2007 Keeneland Concours d' Elegance, a four-day event that benefits the Kentucky Children's Hospital and WUKY-FM, featured an appearance and autograph signing by Bob Tullius, the legendary Jaguar racer. As a founder and former member of the Group 44 racing team, Tullius brought Jaguar racing cars to fame and success in the 1970s. Tullius' team is credited with reintroducing Jaguar to racing and international wins. Jaguar and Tullius were reunited again at Keeneland, at the fourth annual Concours d' Elegance.

Carey Cavenaugh, director of the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce, spent July in the Middle East and south Asia, principally in Baghdad, Iraq, and Kabul, Afghanistan, on a special project for the U.S. Department of State.

16.       UK Libraries Preserves Oral History Interview with the Late Lady Bird Johnson
Former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson, who died this summer, shared her impressions of the relationship between President Johnson and U.S. Senator Earle C. Clements of Kentucky in an oral history interview preserved by the UK Libraries' Special Collections and Digital Programs unit. The interview, conducted Oct. 19, 1976, by Terry Birdwhistell, now associate dean of Special Collections and Digital Programs, is part of the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History. Among many memories, Lady Bird recalled, "I had the feeling that his (Clements') Kentucky raising went with him through life, which I consider a very good thing. I think it's sad that people leave their roots at home when they come to Washington and indeed he didn't. He kept the flavor of his region ... in a very attractive way. He really belonged to Kentucky." To listen to the interview online, go to http://pax.ulcy.edu/audio/oralhist/ljla.mp3.

The series featured University of Kentucky experts Holly Hopper, Jim Cecil, and Susan Pollack. A&E first contacted UK because of its work with the Drug Endangered Child Training Network and the Kentucky Alliance for Drug Endangered Children programs, which are funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission and both housed in the UK College of Public Health. Both programs seek to increase community and professional awareness of the impact of adult drug involvement on children.
19.       National Media Cites UK Health Care in Several Stories in July
In the month of July alone, UK HealthCare was featured in the country1 s most influential newspaper - The New York Times - as well as other leading publications such as The New Yorker, The Washington Post, and O, The Oprah Magazine. Some of the national media notices include:
     A New York Times story chronicling the rapid expansion of medical facilities in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that mentioned only two projects that compete for status as the nation1 s largest. The July 11 story said the new UK Chandler Hospital and academic medical campus of the future rivals Grand Rapid1 s project in scope and cost.
     A story in the July 23 issue of The New Yorker on neurology professor Kevin Nelson1 s research into near-death experiences. The story described Nelson's work to compare near-death experiences with states of consciousness, including REM sleep.
     "Get a Jump on the Silent Killer," an article about ovarian cancer spotlighted on the cover of the July 2007 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, features an interview with UK HealthCare cancer expert John van Nagell. In the article, van Nagell described the ovarian cancer screening study he has spent the last 20 years working on at UK to help increase the chances of ovarian cancer being found at an early stage.
     In light of the recent release of over-the-counter weight-loss drug Alii, the same issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, spotlights the timely research of UK endocrinologist James W. Anderson. The head of the UK College of Medicine Metabolic Research Group and his colleagues examined the effects of over-the-counter strength orlistat on mildly to moderately overweight individuals. Orlistat, known by the brand name Alii, works by decreasing the amount of fat absorbed by the body. The study was the first of its kind.
