Dr. Stephens travels with WKU Confucius Institute

The staff at WKU Health Services would like to wish Dr. Michael Stephens a safe trip as he travels with the Confucius Institute at WKU to Bejing China. Last year, 44 faculty/staff, students, and community members took the adventure to China. Our very own, Ta'Neka Vaden, DNP, APRN participated in the adventure and shared her memorable experience with the staff.
