5 Quick Things: June 17, 2020


1. Hurry – the first 1,000 reservations for the new UTHSC license plate are FREE – and we’re already at 700! 

UTHSC is working to get our FIRST specialty license plate created in Tennessee! However, we must generate 1,000 commitments to move forward with production, and we currently have over 700 orders.

The UTHSC administration has generously agreed to pay the $35 fee for the first 1,000 people to reserve the new license plate! Don’t miss out on this great deal – reserve a license plate today (or even a few license plates if you want to outfit all the drivers in your family) to show UTHSC pride and help support educational outreach! These license plates also make great gifts for UTHSC students and alumni.

3. “Why Aren’t We All Mad?” A Dialogue Series on Structural Racism in Health Care

The UTHSC College of Medicine (CoM) is hosting a virtual community discussion via Zoom on Wednesday, June 24 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm CDT that will include administration and faculty from the college, as well as community and faith leaders in Memphis. As the state’s academic medical institution, the College of Medicine is uniquely positioned to host this important dialogue to better understand the role of the college to make necessary changes to improve a system of structural racism that has created inequities in health care.

This dialogue is the first in a series planned by the college and is supported by the UTHSC Office of Equity and Diversity. While a large portion of the focus will be on the College of Medicine, this event is open to the public and we invite you to join us and participate.
