Academic and clinical excellence to meet the global and community health challenges of today

and to secure regional, national, and global health equity for the future.



The UT College of Medicine Chattanooga Center for Global and Community Health works to

reduce health disparities and improve the overall health in our local community and worldwide. Recognizing that many global health problems arise from economic, social, environmental,

political, and health care inequalities, the Center brings together interdisciplinary teams to solve

complex health problems and to train the next generation of global and community health leaders
