LexWork rides the bus

To gain firsthand insights into Lexington’s public transportation and its riders, LexWork held their meeting on the bus! One of the highlights from the ride along was the impromptu opportunity two of our members, Cary Plummer and David Boggs took to share employment resources with those on the bus. It was a great chance to connect with our community. The bus offers reliable transportation to many. If you or anyone you know need help planning your next ride, contact Emily Elliott at (859) 244-2018 or eelliott@lextran.com (Se Habla Español).

LexWork is scheduled to meet Feb. 13. For more information or to become involved, please contact Jeanette Hart.

Infectious Disease celebrates EKU intern’s help

Intern - Priscillana CawoodInfectious Disease would like to thank Priscillana Cawood for choosing us as her internship site. Priscillana was somewhat of an intern-gatekeeper because she often took infectious disease information and condoms back to the Eastern Kentucky University community. It was a pleasure having her and we appreciate the help she provided our disease intervention specialists with investigations and our epidemiologists during the hepatitis A outbreak.
