Dr. Terrell (Terri) Carpenter and her husband Kenneth Carpenter have long recognized the need for quality primary healthcare in the under served minority communities in Memphis including Whitehaven, the area they love and live. The Memphis Whitehaven area is underserved regarding primary care.
Carpenter Primary Healthcare, PLLC became a reality in 2015 just as the Carpenter's hoped and dreamed. Having already made a major capital investment and created new jobs in the Memphis Whitehaven area, the Carpenters are most proud of being able to offer thousands of residents free health screening to create the community impact the area needs.
Kenneth Carpenter started the MLK Jr. Scholarship during his tenture with Southwest Community College.
Carpenter met with one of his student recipients Hannah Tanous. She is currently enrolled in Southwest's Radiology Program with a 4.0 GPA.
He continues to support the scholarship with additional support from Carpenter Primary Healthcare, PLLC. Special thanks to past President Dr. Nathan Essex and current President Dr. Tracy Hall for their continued support!!!
It was very delightful to be amongst former neighbor Albert Glenn who serves as a Foundation former board member.
