Baughman Visiting Fellows Program to Highlight Health and Safety

Posted on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 [11:50 AM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Area residents will have an opportunity to learn more about healthy living at a special event on Oct. 29.

Lindsey Wilson College will inaugurate the Dr. Henry Baughman Visiting Fellows Program with a pair of public talks by the program's namesake on the A.P. White Campus. Baughman will inaugurate the lecture program with a talk at 10 a.m. CT Oct. 29 in the Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship, and then another talk at 7 p.m. CT Oct. 29 in the Doris and Bob Holloway Health & Wellness Center. Both talks are free and open to the public.

The Baughman Visiting Fellows Program will annually invite a scholar in the field of health, safety and wellness to give a public talk and meet with students. Modeled on the prestigious Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows program, the Baughman Visiting Fellows Program will enlighten area residents and LWC students about critical life issues.

"The potential impact of the Baughman Visiting Fellows Program on the lives of Lindsey Wilson students and the communities in which they live is great," said LWC Vice President for Academic Affairs Bettie Starr.

Baughman funded the fellows program with a $25,000 gift. In addition to attracting a visiting scholar to LWC, the program will support undergraduate research projects in the subjects of health, safety and wellness.

Baughman, who is a retired Western Kentucky University professor who taught health and safety, said he initiated the program because he wants people to learn more about health and safety.

"I hope people will become more health- and safety-conscious," said Baughman, who lives in Smithfield, Ky. "I also want to challenge people to come up with solutions to a lot of the health and safety problems we face."

Baughman is a legend among Kentucky emergency medical technologists. He helped start Western Kentucky University's emergency medical technologist/training program, and he also shaped some of Kentucky's regulations for emergency technologists.

Baughman is also a hall of fame tennis player. He has been an active tennis player for more than 60 years, and he is a member of the Kentucky Tennis Hall of Fame. LWC's tennis center is named in his honor.
