Morning and afternoon fund drives were held on the campus on November 13, with students, faculty, staff, members of the local health care community and the public contributing. Physical therapy student Rusty Middleton (at right) whose mom is from the Philippines, brought $340 he had raised from his classmates.  All the money went  to the American Red Cross for relief efforts for those recovering from the devastation of the typhoon. “We want to thank everyone who made the time to contribute to this important campaign,” said UTHSC Executive Vice Chancellor and COO Ken Brown, JD, MPA, PhD, FACHE.  “You’ll never know how much your generosity means to people in need.”
