About Us

What We Do

We provide health coach support and lifestyle/stress management, and also assist the Uptown community in getting access to essential primary and behavioral health care. Our vision is to improve health outcomes for residents in Uptown. The UTHSC Health Hub in Uptown is the prototype for what is hoped to be a series of locations established by the UTHSC College of Medicine under its Equitable Health in Neighborhoods initiative, to provide a convenient entry point to primary care for people in underserved areas of Memphis and Shelby County.
