Participate in the Surgeon General's Call to Action Survey

Don’t miss this opportunity to have your voice heard in the development of the upcoming Surgeon General’s Call to Action! We need representation from rural communities to help inform this important work.

CDC is the lead agency to support the Office of the Surgeon General to publish a Call to Action that will be science-informed and actionable, outlining a conceptual framework with case examples and available evidence on the business case for investing in community health. The goal of the Call to Action is to: Clearly demonstrate that investments in community health have the potential to improve the health and prosperity of communities and issue a call to action to the private sector and local policy-makers for investment in communities, unilaterally or as part of multi-sector or other consortia, to improve community health.

Interested persons or organizations are invited to submit written views, recommendations, and data about how investing in communities can improve health and prosperity.

KCTM Sounds of our Heritage Concert

The Kentucky Center for Traditional Music (KCTM) will host its Sounds of Our Heritage concert on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. at the Rowan County Arts Center.

The event will feature performances by KCTM students and will feature bluegrass, old time, country, western swing, blues, gospel and ballads.

Raymond McLain, KCTM director, said the Sounds of Our Heritage concerts are held several times a year to not only let KCTM students gain experience performing in public, but to also highlight the skills of talented musicians. 

“Everyone should come because they will hear Morehead State University Traditional Music Students at their best,” McLain said. “Some of the students who will be performing have represented Morehead State and mountain music and culture regionally and internationally at concerts, festivals and have been broadcast on television and radio.”

The event is free and open to the public.

For more information on the KCTM, visit www.moreheadstate.edu/kctm or call 606-783-9001.

Startheater1280x720.jpg

MSU’s Space Science Center (SSC) will host a free public event as part of International Observe the Moon Night, Thursday, Oct. 18.  


The SSC will have a variety of telescopes set up on the patio for people to try out. There will be activities inside the Space Science Center, where the Geology Club will be selling hot dogs and chili and there will be a variety of children’s activities. In addition, there will be several moon-themed presentations in the Star Theater during the event. The schedule is:

    •    7 p.m. - Earth, Moon, and Sun Show 
    •    7:35 p.m. - Origin of the Moon Talk by Dr. Eric Jerde

    •    8:45 p.m.- Evidence that We Really Went talk by Dr. Eric Jerde 
    •    9:20 p.m. - Dark Side of the Moon Laser Show 

“This provides people with an opportunity to learn about the moon,” said Eric Jerde, chair of MSU’s Department of Earth and Space Sciences. “The public has largely forgotten about it, and headlines about space are now focused more on the Space Station or Mars and other planets. The moon is something we all see very often, yet seldom think about.” He added anyone who has ever had questions about the moon should attend the event.
