2023 Preceptor Recognition Celebration

November 28, 2023

The Northeast Kentucky Area Health Education Center’s annual Preceptor Recognition Celebration was a huge success on Friday, Nov. 10. Approximately 200 guests were in attendance to honor preceptors from across our 17-county region, including Bath, Boyd, Carter, Clark, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lawrence, Lewis, Mason, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, Nicholas, Powell, Robertson, and Rowan counties. We didn’t have to be in New Orleans to go to Mardi Gras!
