Leading today.
Defining tomorrow.


Meharry Medical College is playing a vital role in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus. As a health spokesperson explaining the science of COVID-19 and how to defeat it, Meharry President and CEO James E.K. Hildreth Sr., Ph.D., M.D., has appeared regularly in Metro Nashville press conferences, communicating with viewers about doing their part by staying home and distancing from each other in keeping the virus in check.


A renowned researcher in HIV/AIDS science, his unique background in the study of virulent diseases and the human immune system coupled with his unassuming manner and style has made him a calming voice for Nashville viewers looking for answers.
