Dr. Amanda Fallin-Bennett

Dr. Amanda Fallin-Bennett, Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky College of Nursing, has successfully competed for National Institute for Health funding as well as a variety of state and foundation grants.  She is a co-investigator on the University of Kentucky’s HEAL grant, which is the single largest grant the university has ever received. This grant has the ambitious goal of reducing overdose deaths by 40%, in part through recovery support services.  As Co-founder and Program Director of Voices of Hope, Dr. Fallin-Bennett was instrumental in the creation of our recovery community center as well as the development, implementation, and evaluation of our recovery support services. Under her leadership, Voices of Hope launched a variety of programs, including Telephone Recovery Support, Recovery Coaching, Overdose Response Training, an employment readiness internship, a scholarship for a student in recovery attending college or trade/vocational school, All Recovery Meetings, and SMART Friends and Family meetings. Through these programs, Dr. Fallin-Bennett has helped Voices of Hope fulfill our mission of helping people in recovery and their families stay in recovery.
