Dedicated to Rice Cowan Leach ’62

This year’s Fink Bioscience symposium is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Rice Cowan Leach ’62. Dr. Leach, who passed away in April 2016, is remembered by his classmates as a deeply compassionate man who worked tirelessly to enrich the communities he served, ranging from Guatemala to American Indian reservations, and from big cites to small towns. In March, 2016 he was awarded the Lexington-Fayette County Board of Health’s 2016 Health Hero award, which was then renamed The Dr. Rice C. Leach Public Health Hero Award.
