Dinner with Kats
In an effort to unite students with alumni,
faculty and board members, CHS hosted a networking event that is growing in
popularity at universities across the country.
Dinner with Kats offered students the opportunity to sit down
for dinner with alumni and professors in the healthcare fields
they are interested in pursuing. Designed after similar
networking events taking place across the country, the College
of Health Sciences took a cue from alumni eager to get involved
in college initiatives and coordinated the mixer that gave
current students and alumni the chance to sit down at the same
table as faculty and board members.
The event took place on the evening of November 8 at the Hilary
J. Boone Center, located on the University of Kentucky’s campus.
After a welcome from Interim Dean Dr. Sharon Stewart, students,
alumni and CHS faculty were seated and invited to participate in
an open dialogue about the allied health professions.
Students were given the chance to ask questions about topics
such as the workforce, how to overcome academic hardships and
how to balance school, work, family and other activities. Tables
were arranged to include an inter-professional audience so that
students were exposed to a variety of healthcare perspectives.
In recent years CHS alumni have expressed a desire to form a
deeper connection with the college’s academic programs and
current students. Dinner With Kats aimed to provide this
opportunity to alumni, faculty and students. The event allowed
participants the chance to network outside the classroom and
build a foundation for mentorship and collegiate involvement.
