Jagdish, a medical school graduate and physician in India, has been working with Dr. Watkins at WKU for the past 18 months. “I see pictures of great men in this room and I feel honored to be here,” he said. “On my flight to United States I cried, but the entire response from people at Western Kentucky University has been absolutely therapeutic.”
