Amitabh Chandra, professor of public policy, was inducted into the University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics Alumni Hall of Fame today
(March 1).

"Induction into the Gatton Hall of Fame is a prestigious honor for our business school alumni," said Merl Hackbart, interim dean of the college. "The inductees represent several different professions and career paths, yet all have distinguished themselves in their business pursuits and in civic and community leadership."

A total of 75 men and women who have distinguished themselves in their business pursuits and in civic and community leadership, have been recognized by the Gatton College with this honor since the inception of the Hall of Fame in 1994. This is the 18th class of inductees to the hall.

Amitabh Chandra’s research focuses on productivity and cost-growth in healthcare and racial disparities in healthcare.
