Join Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center (MWCHC) as we host a benefit breakfast honoring the life of Dr. Matthew Walker, Sr., a pioneer in Nashville medicine. The purpose of this gathering is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of MWCHC, but also to recognize the life of Dr. Walker, as this center bears his name. Dr. Walker was one of the first African Americans voted into the Nashville Academy of Medicine and was on the Board of Hospital Commissioners of Nashville General Hospital. He founded Meharry Neighborhood Health Center in 1968, which was later renamed Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center. The breakfast will take place in The Cal Turner Family Center at Meharry Medical College and will feature a keynote address by Dr. Henry Foster, Professor Emeritus and former Dean of the School of Medicine at Meharry College and Clinical Professor of Obsterics and Gynecology at Vanderbilt University. The event is free to the public, and donations are appreciated, with all proceeds benefiting Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center.
