Rice Leach Retires

If you’ve worked in the health care industry in Kentucky, then you know Rice Leach. The Lexington Herald Leader has a nice article this morning chronicling Dr. Leach’s long career in public health here in Kentucky.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Leach while a Board Member of Health Kentucky, which operates the Kentucky Physicians Care program. KPC is a volunteer organization of doctors across the Commonwealth who give free care to the medically indigent. It’s a largely unknown program outside of the membership of the Kentucky Medical Association.

The organization is a public-private partnership with a hotline manned by public health staffers with the Cabinet for Health Services. Dr. Leach is a long-time supporter.

Here’s to a long and happy retirement, Dr. Leach.
