MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR
The Kansas Comeback
“Together, let’s make Kansas the best state in America to raise a family and grow a business.”
In light of the upcoming holiday season, Governor Sam Brownback on Friday released a proclamation urging Kansans to reconcile and make peace with others wherever possible.
Highlights of the report include specific directions to increase medical training together with physician recruitment and development. The report indicates that recruiting Kansas students early on to offer them a chance to be get their medical degree right here in the state will help keep them on track to stay here and practice medicine upon graduation. The report highlights an existing pool of prospective medical students that could be recruited into a DO school and the opportunity to use federal funds to establish new residency programs in rural Kansas hospitals where they are not currently offered.
The Governor had personally interviewed Lee on several occasions when he was a nominee for judicial appointments, and was scheduled to meet with him again on the day after his untimely passing. He was a current nominee for a vacant seat on the Shawnee County District Court, and his credentials and experience made him a strong candidate for the position.
