Due to the recent budget cuts to higher education in KY Dr. Ryan's position at the university has been removed. She was not fired. Her position was just removed out from under her.
If she can't keep this position she will lose her health insurance and will be forced to stop helping her community because she will flee KY in search of a state that won't allow budget cuts on higher education.
