Doctors Hope to Bring UTHSC Health Hubs to Neighborhoods in Memphis; Opens First Saturday


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — There is excitement in a Memphis neighborhood where many with an increased risk of certain health complications, seen in many African Americans, will now have access to healthcare right in their neighborhood.

It’s a model doctors are planning to expand to more neighborhoods in the city.

“It sustains life, and that’s what we want to do,” said Tanja Mitchell, a longtime resident of the city’s Uptown neighborhood.

The UTHSC health hub, the first of many planned by UTHSC, will allow certified health coaches to meet with patients, offering health screenings, advice on healthier eating, and preventative and primary care health services.
