Rhodes, U of M, UTHSC team up with Healing church


Bishop William Young and Pastor Dianne Young, founders of the Suicide in the Black Church conference, had a vision to have a clinic at their church. With a background in community health — primarily mental health — the couple was introduced to Dr. David M. Stern, vice chancellor for health for statewide initiatives at University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC). When Stern learned of their vision, he began putting together a volunteer coalition from several community institutions, including the University of Memphis, Rhodes College and West Cancer Center.
