Dr. Koh Visiting UK HealthCare
As many of you know, one of my favorite job duties is keeping abreast
of the ongoing healthcare reform discussion, especially as it relates
to UK HealthCare and others around the state. I enjoy giving talks to
different groups on healthcare reform, and I especially like listening
to discussions regarding healthcare reform to learn any new and
important information. That is why I am very excited to welcome Howard
K. Koh, MD, MPH to UK Healthcare to discuss the future of the U.S.
Dr. Koh, who is the Assistant Secretary for Health & Human Services, is presenting his lecture next Tuesday, January 10th from 10-12 in the Pavilion A Auditorium.
Dr. Koh was nominated by President Obama in 2009 for the role of
Assistant Secretary and was later confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Dr. Koh
has had a very successful career in healthcare. He previously served as
professor and Associate Dean for Public Health Practice at the Harvard
School of Public Health. From 1997-2003, Dr. Koh served as Commissioner
of Public Health for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, where he led the
Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Dr. Koh graduated from Yale
College and then from the Yale University School of Medicine. He did
postgraduate training at Boston City Hospital and Massachusetts General
Hospital. He earned his Master of Public Health degree from Boston
University, where he also taught.
I'm looking forward to a great seminar. Stay tuned for a follow-up
blog after his visit. For those of you who want to attend this event,
RSVP to Amit Arbune at firstname.lastname@example.org.
