Frontiers

Welcome to the latest issue of Frontiers, our quarterly online magazine featuring stories of healing, education and discovery. Together The University of Tennessee Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine make up the region’s academic medical center.

In this issue of Frontiers, you will learn about our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit expansion, the late Dr. W. Bedford Waters’ legacy of excellence in leadership and medicine, Mackenzie’s inspiring story of recovery from a traumatic injury, and Karissa’s fight against cancer and the expert care she received at The University of Tennessee Medical Center. We also celebrate our 20 years of growth since the formation of University Health System.

We hope you enjoy these stories, and we look forward to hearing from you at frontiers@utmck.edu.
