Two HHS students have taken a leadership role with the UK Student Health Advisory Committee. Brittanie Mahanna is the Chair of the UK SHAC, and Kelly Snowden is serving as Co-Chair. SHAC is an active group of students who work with the University Health Service to provide important consumer/student input and makes recommendations to UHS and to the administration of the University relating to the Health Service budget, the student health insurance plan, recruitment of Health Service professional staff, health education, and any health related matter of interest to UK students.Back to TopNew Platform to Connect with Potential Collaborators
Researchers may now access the UK-specific KNODE portal to search for collaborators, particularly in the biomedical field, and their scientific content (pubs, grants, clinical trials, etc.). KNODE automatically generates and updates profiles, but one can still manually edit a profile. Researchers are able to “claim their profile” so that they can further edit them. For more information on KNODE, visit the website. Or to go right into searching via expertise, investigator name, or affiliation, visit click here.Back to Top
