community and economic IMPACT
Meharry Medical College is a dedicated health advocate for the Nashville community; especially those who are uninsured or underinsured, and those who have limited access to medical care.
Each year Meharry provides an uncompensated $26 million in medical and dental care to the local Nashville community at no cost to the patient. Additionally, Meharry reaches out to the community through a variety of programs that aid underserved populations such as the homeless and the elderly to help improve the quality of their health care.
Outreach programs at Meharry improve the quality of life for those in our community, one person at a time.
