 LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 13, 2019) — UK HealthCare’s Department of Family and Community Medicine will welcome a renowned physician coach from the Studer Group to deliver the latest iteration of its distinguished lecture series.  

Dr. Jeff Morris, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with over a decade of experience working with physicians and medical staff across the country, will present, “Patient Engagement: Why Should I Care and What’s in it For Me?” this Thursday, May 16, at 12:30 p.m. at UK HealthCare Turfland, room 2123.  

Morris’ lecture will discuss how physicians can harness good verbal, vocal and visual communication skills to improve patient outcomes.
