History

In December 2003, the University of Tennessee Medical Group collaborating with University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) partnered with BCBST to pilot a new program to impact the high infant mortality rate in the Memphis, Shelby County region called the "Blues Project." In 2010 this project expanded to the Chattanooga, Hamilton County region.

In 2011, the Blues Project was transferred to the UTHSC OBGYN Department to continue the efforts to define sustainable approaches improving health care quality and health outcomes while reducing the infant mortality rate in Tennessee.
