Blue Ash

University of Cincinnati-Blue Ash has announced a new program is benefiting both college and elementary school students.

According to the college's website, "The Radiologic Technology program at UC Blue Ash College hosted more than 85 kindergarten students from Blue Ash Elementary School as part of the X is for X-Ray event. The purpose for the new program was two-fold. It gave students in the Radiologic Technology [Rad Tech] program at UC Blue Ash the chance to interact with young children in a health care setting as they prepare for clinical rotations at Cincinnati Children's Hospital this summer. For the kindergarten students, it was a chance to learn more about the different bones in our bodies and the process for having an X-ray exam. The college students showed the kindergartners the X-ray lab, explained how the X-ray equipment worked and provided examples of bones."  

The satellite campus of the University of Cincinnati is at 9555 Plainfield Road, Blue Ash.
