    The Vanderbilt  Student Health Coalition was initiated by medical, nursing, law and undergraduate students at Vanderbilt in 1969. Over the year of its existence, the student group reached out  to  rural medically  underserved communities in TN, KY, and VA to work with local leaders in building networks of primary care clinics and to address other health related issues.  Recently, alumni of the Coalition  have begun collecting historical documents, photographs, recordings and interviews into an electronic Archive at the Southern Historical Collection of  the University of North Carolina  in cooperation with the Eskind Biomedical Library .  We invite you to join Irwin Venick and Dr. Joseph Little, both of whom were involved as Student Health Coalition participants and are now among the leaders of the Archive project, as they speak about their experiences and the transformative impact of the project on their professional lives and the development of clinics such as Shade Tree.
    Our speakers are:  
    Irwin Venick (J.D., 1975), attorney
    Dr. Joseph Little (BA, 1972; M.D. 1977), pediatrician
