UK HealthCare Community Engagement

We Take Pride in Achieving Excellence in Patient Care, Education, Research and Community Service

Developed in 2006, UK HealthCare's community engagement program has established mutually beneficial relationships with and is a major contributor to more than 120 local, state and national organizations that are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of countless citizens in our city, state and beyond.

More than simply extending financial support, UK HealthCare’s community engagement program provides accurate and reliable health information and education, health screenings, and risk assessments, along with an extensive lineup of expert physician and other clinical speakers.

We offer and support helpful programs to educate and engage the public to improve the overall quality life for every citizen across the Commonwealth. Whether you are a new parent, a horse enthusiast or curious about habits to create a healthier lifestyle, we can help. Take a look at our programs and learn how you can make a difference in your life and your community.
