Eric T. Epperson

“Too many people in our community (and around the globe) lack access to basic health care, and the problem grows each year. Solving this crisis is going to take creativity, unlikely partnerships and big ideas, and Regional One Health is a torchbearer in all three of these areas in the Mid-South. I’m passionate about this cause and I’m excited to help Regional One expand its mission.”
Director Plan Administration and Labor Relations, Memphis Area Transit Authority
“Growing up in Memphis has made me keenly aware of Regional One Health’s invaluable contributions to the medical industry. It’s an honor to join the Regional One Health Foundation board to support these efforts.”

“Our community is stronger because of the work being done at Regional One Health. I love Memphis, and I want to do what I can to ensure others in this region have access to the best quality of life possible. That’s why I’m honored to play a role in helping further the mission of Regional One.”
