Diagnosing Our Future Speaker Series

In the 2009-2010 academic year, the Gordon E. Inman College of Health Sciences & Nursing initiated the Diagnosing Our Future Speaker Series.

The inaugural event featured Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen and U.S. Congressman Jim Cooper discussing solutions to the country's healthcare issues in October 2009.  This discussion came prior to passage of the Affordable Care Act in March 2010.  Governor Tommy Thompson, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and four-term governor of the state of Wisconsin, followed a month later with his perspective on the issue.

In January 2010, Attorney Fred Gray was featured in a two-day event celebrating his contributions to the American Civil Rights Movement, including his representation of the victims of the Tuskegee Experiment.

Finally, in March 2010, Dr. David Williams keynoted a Dialogue to Build a Healthier Community.
