For the past [number of years you’ve been a member of the Advancement Board] years, I’ve been a member of the Advancement Board, the advisory group that represents the objectives of The University of Kansas Health System and the University of Kansas Medical Center. The academic medical center is doing transformative work across the region, and I’m excited to highlight some of its incredible impact over the next year.

I’ll be sharing updates from time to time here, and if you’re interested in learning more about the academic medical center and the Advancement Board, make sure to visit the link below.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. This #AmericanHeartMonth, I am proud to highlight how The University of Kansas Health System is continually #AdvancingHealthCare and pioneering breakthrough treatments in cardiac care: 

  • The system is the first hospital in the U.S. to be awarded Comprehensive Cardiac Center Certification for its wholistic approach to care, commitment to excellence and dedication to continuous improvement.
  • The Cardiovascular Research Institute is working to uncover knowledge that will bring new therapies to patients.
  • The Cardiovascular Research and Artificial Intelligence Center is taking a multidisciplinary approach to improve patient outcomes through technology.

Today is One Day. One KU., a 24-hour giving day that supports initiatives and programs across all University of Kansas campuses. Join the collective movement by making a gift today. #AdvancingHealthCare #AcademicMedicineAdvocate

Mental health is an important part of overall health, but access to these resources remains a challenge for many Kansans. As an Advancement Board member, I’m proud to highlight some of the ways The University of Kansas Health System and the University of Kansas Medical Center are striving to close this gap:

  • The Behavioral Health Navigator program was recently launched at the Strawberry Hill campus to help people find the mental and behavioral health professionals they need when they need them. So far, the program has served over 250 patients and has been expanded to the Marillac campus.
  • The Suicide and Community Resource Program is focused on reducing suicide by educating 3000+ people on how to identify and support at-risk individuals through numerous initiatives.
  • It’s estimated that half of all Kansas board-certified, practicing psychiatric providers have benefited from KU School of Medicine’s nationally recognized teaching program.
  • KU Medical Center is joining forces with government agencies, schools and community partners to improve the mental health of K-12 students in Kansas.
