For Dr. Hildreth and Meharry Medical College, a year of recognition
Editor’s note: We say “hindsight is 2020.” After this year, many of us want “2020 in hindsight.” We’re all eager to move on after a tumultuous year.
But it’s important to recognize that in 2020, Meharry Medical College found its place in the spotlight like never before. Meharrians brought their best to work. And we’ve been recognized repeatedly for it this year unlike any other time.
So, here in review is a list of links to Meharry national media appearances, along with the well-deserved recognition of Dr. James Hildreth by media and the many governmental committees and activities he has taken part in this year.
