Patient and Community Member initiatives are led by our Patient Advisory Councils (PAC) representing Memphis, Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Tri-cities. These PAC members help assure our programming is patient-centered and community-led. This programming consists of medical information, tips and lifestyle recommendations, evidence-based recommendations, lived experiences, and awareness of resources to meet physical, mental, social, emotional, community and spiritual needs.

Below, view our Webinars about the concerns of individuals in communities and their perspectives on being a patient.
