The purpose of UTSPM is:
- To increase understanding of Preventive Medicine challenges faced within the Memphis community and globally through speakers, seminars and workshops.
- To provide a forum for discussion and execution of medical or behavioral interventional projects.
- To advocate for such policies that will promote a healthier UTHSC campus.
- To participate in and support research in the field of Preventive Medicine.
In striving towards these goals, we hope to increase awareness about Preventive Medicine as a medical specialty and create an environment of proactive health care.
