Back to Top Dr. Jane Kleinert Receives Award

       Dr. Jane Kleinert received the KSHA-ASHF Clinical Achievement Award at last week’s KY Speech/Language Hearing Association Convention. The Clinical Achievement Award is presented to a speech-language pathologist or audiologist in KY for significant recent accomplishments or contributions to the advancement of knowledge in clinical practice. Kentucky’s recipient becomes the state’s nomination for the American Speech Hearing Foundation National DiCarlo Award presented at the national ASHA convention in November.

Back to Top Dr. Geza Bruckner Named Director
Health Services Education and Research Division

Several years ago we created a new Division of Health Services Education and Research (HSER) that housed the Clinical Leadership and Management undergraduate program. Through the years, the unit became known by the name of the degree program (CLM), and the Division title was largely forgotten. When the Human Health Sciences (HHS) undergraduate program was developed, we proposed that it be housed administratively alongside the CLM program in the HSER Division. 

Dr. Skaff has been the Acting Director of the CLM program for several years, She graciously took on this responsibility while also serving as Clinical Sciences Department Chair. She has been integral to the development and implementation of the new program, managed significant changes in personnel, teaches several courses, recruits, and advises students, and, most recently, actively participated in developing a proposal to provide students with an alternative pathway for entering the CLM program. She also teaches in the HHS program.

Dr. Bruckner was named Acting Director of the HHS program in 2012 and has worked diligently with faculty, staff, and students to provide the present cohort with high quality experiences, and we fully expect to meet our goal of 75 students in the 2013 class.  

In an effort to provide stability for the CLM and HHS programs and to take advantage of the synergies between the two programs, Dr. Bruckner and Dr. Skaff, in her role as Chair, have both agreed that Dr. Bruckner will assume the role of Director of the Health Services Education and Research Division effective March 04, 2013. In this role, his duties will include directing both the HHS and CLM undergraduate degree programs. Dr. Skaff will continue to function as an active member of the CLM program and will contribute to the HHS program, as well.
