KU reaches out to build healthy communities KU students, faculty and staff are making positive changes in every Kansas community they touch. Researchers are finding new ways to help doctors (http://bit.ly/16my2qa) treat obesity in rural areas. Students are volunteering for a (http://bit.ly/1HMA6YX) suicide prevention hotline. Military veterans and their families are benefiting from (http://bit.ly/1zvjpds) Wounded Warriors Scholarship program. KU has also helped launch and market a new online tool that helps social service agencies (http://bit.ly/1wBaYLA) more easily place foster children into compatible families. And KU’s pharmacy researchers are (http://bit.ly/1JthSck) developing vaccines and drugs that will place Kansas at the forefront of an effort to save lives worldwide, while boosting the economy back home.
