Transform Health – University Health Service
(for UK students only)
Transform Health is a partnership of UK HealthCare providers who have the shared goal of meeting many of the unique medical needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals in Kentucky. Services are offered to University of Kentucky students at the University Health Service (UHS) on campus and to all community members at our central clinic, the UK Family Medicine Transform Health Clinic at UK HealthCare-Turfland.
Nurse practitioner Joanne Brown, DNP, APRN, WHNP-C, FNP-C, CTTS, is Transform site director at UHS. All full-time UK students pay a mandatory health fee that entitles them to most services at UHS for free. Health insurance coverage is strongly recommended for expenses not covered by the fee, including most diagnostic procedures, surgery, hospitalization and prescription medicine.
