Cover of UTHSC Centennial Book

The centennial book titled - The Legacy The Future: A Centennial Portrait of The University of Tennessee Health Science Center - is available in the UTHSC Bookstore located at 930 Madison Avenue (plaza level) in Memphis.

"The centennial book is a well-photographed and meticulously written snapshot of our past and present as well as a glimpse of our future," said UTHSC Chancellor Steve Schwab, MD. "Brief, thoughtfully crafted essays offer the reader a clear understanding of the milieu in which the Health Science Center was formed and insight into the expansion of each of our colleges. Coupled with the crisp, insightful text are vivid, engrossing photographs that draw the reader into our story and provide an overview of the impact and importance of our statewide academic institution."

The beautifully photographed, oversized coffee table book is priced at $60, but the advance, discount price is $50, plus shipping [$6.95 for the first book, $1.95 for each additional book shipped to the same address].
