Healthcare professionals, lawyers, and outreach leaders came together at Trevecca on Saturday to host the Nashville Community Outreach and Resource Center’s annual health care and free flu shot fair.

Thirteen different organizations gathered in Boone Business Building to provide services to the underprivileged and uninsured of Nashville. The event is intended to serve as a one-stop-shop for these individuals, desiring to offer a holistic solution to the issues they’re facing.

The Nashville Community Outreach and Resource Center (NCORC) is an emergency social services provider. Through the network that they have developed over the years, they extend help to those who are in need in the greater Nashville area, whether that be housing, healthcare, or food. Each case is treated with individual care.



The NCORC executive director, Debbie Murphy, says that the work they do would not be possible without the partnership of Trevecca.

“Trevecca has been a godsend to the NCORC. I don’t know what we would have done. We just celebrated 12 years and I honestly don’t think we would have been able to do that without the center for social justice standing behind us and doing everything they do for us.”

One of the organizations that participated in the health fair was the Meharry Student Run Free Clinic. This organization is a link in the community that is regularly contacted by the NCORC. Currently located on 12 South, this clinic exists to provide primary care for those who might not be able to obtain it otherwise.

Gabriela Heslop, Meharry’s Community Outreach Director, said that when it comes to outreach healthcare, primary care is extremely important.

“The goal is to prevent dire situations. Preventative care is one of the most important steps.”

Overall, Iris Gordon, the director of the Center for Social Justice Center’s neighborhood empowerment program, said that she was pleased with the results of the health fair. She also encouraged Trevecca students to get involved with the NCORC while they’re still in school.

“The organization always needs champions. You can get immediate application of their academic learning. Like, immediate. So you don’t have to wait until you get a job. You can connect where your passion is with the skills you’re acquiring at the university.”

Almost all types of surgery have risks factors of some form or another. This applies to gastric bypass surgery as well; it has its fair share of risks too.
