“The UTHSC Women’s Resource Group responded to our faculty member, Dr. Amik Sodhi’s suggestion that we provide snacks and nourishing items to first responders in hospitals,” said Chandra Alston, EdD, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, associate vice chancellor of Human Resources at UTHSC. “Several organizations were donating, but those donations are few and far between when you spread them between all of the hospitals in the Mid-south area. Each hospital was grateful for our donation and we were excited to contribute. Thank you to all of the wonderful women of our group.”
