UofL centers have economic impact in excess of $5.7 million
Date:1/11/2012

LOUISVILLE, Ky. During 2010-2011, University of Louisville Health Sciences Center faculty and students made an economic impact of more than $5.7 million in the four regions of Kentucky served by UofL Area Health Education Centers.

Specifically, AHEC faculty from UofL provided donated services valued at $5,606,599 while their students spent a total of $108,103 in living and travel expenses in the four regions.

At the same time, the financial impact of these partnerships cannot be underestimated."

"We believe the economic impact in each county we serve is an extra benefit in the return on the investment into the AHEC program," Dr. V. Faye Jones, AHEC program director and assistant dean of academic affairs at UofL's School of Medicine, said.
