    UK’s Blue Angels

    The UK Blue Angels program was developed to assist local health care providers and pregnant women across Kentucky.

    The program gives these providers access to the expertise of Maternal Fetal Medicine physicians at UK HealthCare without having to travel to Lexington. High-risk ultrasounds can be read remotely by the physicians in Lexington and local providers can consult in real time with the UK specialists.
