LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 29, 2014) — There are many families across campus, around the state and throughout the world that share deep University of Kentucky connections. 

 

Point of Care Ultrasound Director and Assistant Emergency Medicine Program Director Dr. Matthew Dawson and his wife Dr. Kristin Dawson, a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellow, are no exception.   The couple met at the William T. Young Library and married while attending the UK College of Medicine.  

 

But their connections run deeper still.  Watch the “Big Blue Family” video above to discover how their ties to UK were strengthened when their infant daughter Avery battled a sudden illness at Kentucky Children's Hospital and why they both have renewed motivation to serve their fellow Kentuckians. 

 

This video feature is part of a special new series produced by UKNow focusing on families who help make up the University of Kentucky community.   There are many couples, brothers and sisters, mothers and sons and fathers and daughters who serve at UK in various fields.   The idea is to show how UK is part of so many families’ lives and how so many families are focused on helping the university succeed each and everyday. 

  

Since the "Big Blue Family" series is now a monthly feature on UKNow, we invite you to submit future ideas.  If you know of a family who you think should be featured, please email us.  Who knows?  We might just choose your suggestion for our next feature!
