Congressman James E. Clyburn to Give Meharry Medical College Commencement Address
Date:5/10/2010

135th Commencement will be Held on May 22

Nashville, Tenn. (Vocus) May 10, 2010 -- Congressman James E. Clyburn will give the commencement address at the 135th Commencement ceremony for Meharry Medical College on May 22. Commencement exercises will be held at 1 p.m. at David Lipscomb University in the Allen Arena. Doors open at 11:30 a.m.

Congressman Clyburn is the Majority Whip in the U.S. House of Representatives. He was unanimously elected to the third-ranking position (behind the Speaker of the House and the Majority Leader) in the House by the House Democratic Caucus in 2006. He is the first South Carolinian and the second African American to hold the position. As Whip, Clyburn is responsible for ensuring and counting that there are sufficient votes to pass legislation as deemed appropriate by congressional leadership. He is the highest ranking African American in Congress.

Meharry Medical College is dedicated to improving the health care of minority and underserved communities and eliminating health disparities. Roughly 78 percent of alumni return to underserved communities to provide health care service. Approximately 50 percent of the students in the class of 2010 have matched into the much needed primary care fields of general internal medicine, pediatrics, family medicine, internal medicine/pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology.

Clyburn was instrumental in the passage of health care reforms which he says will have an impact on alleviating disparities.

"Meharry's physicians, dentists, biomedical scientists and public health professionals share my passion and dedication to alleviating health disparities,” Clyburn said. "I am honored to address these future leaders of the nation's health care system who will join me
