This Meharrian Life

Created and hosted by fourth-year medical student Bassam Zahid, SOM ’18, “This Meharrian Life” seeks to highlight members of the Meharry family through personal interviews about their lives, motivations and the impact of the college.


The idea for “This Meharrian Life” followed the deaths of two popular professors — George A. Breaux, M.D., and Ifeanyi J. Arinze, Ph.D. Realizing Meharry was losing an important wealth of wisdom, knowledge and history, the podcast project began in order to highlight the work of students, alumni, faculty and administrators.


Whether it is listening to Dr. Italo Brown, SOM’ 15, speak about how he prepares for a shift in the ER, or Dr. Henry Moses reflect on over 50 years as an educator or Dr. Susanne Tropez-Sims share her perspective on leadership, there is something for everyone to gain from the experiences and wisdom of our guests on “This Meharrian Life.”


Thanks for listening!
