The Kentucky Depart- ment for Public Health has been notified of five recent cases of fungal meningitis in Kentucky residents who received medical care in Tennessee. These cases of illness match the pattern associated with a multi- state outbreak thathas been linked to injections from three lots of steroid medications distributed by the New England Com- pounding Center, a com- poundingmnly pharmacy. This type of fungal menin- gifts is not contagious. The New England Com- pounding Center has is- sued a voluntary recall of all products it has pro- duced or distributed. Al- though none of the impli- cated lots of contaminated medication is known to have been distributed in Kentucky, other lots and types medicines from this company have been sent to Kentucky facilities. The U.S. Food and Drug Ad- ministration and KDPH recommend that pharma- ceuticals manufactured by this company not be used for patients. More information on this recall is available at the FDA's webgzte. Pae Department for Public Health is closely monitoring this situation as it evolves," said Dr. Stephanie Mayfield, com- missioner of the Depart- ment for Public Health. "We now know that several Kentuckians who received treatment out of state have been affected by this out- break. We are working with our partners at lo- cal health departments and with the state health care associations to notify health care facilities that may have received medi- cations included on the recall list to ensure that they are not used to treat Kentucky patients." Kentuckians who have received epidural steroid injections since May 21 and have any of the follow- ing symptoms should talk to their health provider as soon as possible: Worsening headache Fever Sensitivity to light Stiff neck New weakness or numbness in any part of your body Slurred speech If Kentuckians have questions or concerns about steroid injections they have received, DPH recommends they contact their health care provider. Clinicians should immedi- ately inform the state or local health department of any patients that are undergoing evaluation for suspected fungal infection related to this outbreak. For more information and national updates on the multistate outbreak, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

Morehead State Univer- sit s Office of Enrollment Services will host an Open House, Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. until noon in the Adron Doran Univer- sity Center on the More head campus. According to enrollment services, the Open House event will be an excellent opportunity for students and families to discover why MSU has been named one of "America's Best Colleges" by U.S. News and World Report for the ninth year running. University representa- fives will be available to meet students and their families, answer ques- tions, lead campus tours and share information con- cerning college life. "Our goal is to make it convenient to get answers to questions about starting college by bringing deans, department chairs and faculty from our academic programs, as well as staff from admissions, financial aid, housing and many more services together in one place," said Holly Pollock, director of under- graduate admissions. "Families will hear suc- cess stories about our graduates and learn some statistics that demonstrate the academic quality of- fered at MSU." On one such measure of success, MSU graduates are consistently accepted into professional schools, including medical, dental and pharmacy programs, at rates well above state and national averages. Students and families are encouraged to register for the Open House.
