Kennard Brown, executive vice chancellor and chief operating officer of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, has received the Healthcare Education Award from the Nashville-based Council on Workforce Innovation.

The statewide award, presented at the 2014 Healthcare Diversity Forum in Nashville, recognized Brown’s efforts in promoting diversity in health care education. The regional forum, which drew administrators, clinicians, educators, human resources specialists and business leaders, focused on the financial value of diversity in the health care workforce, and discussed resources for advancing quality health care delivery for underrepresented populations.

The Council on Workforce Innovation is part of the National Organization for Workforce Diversity, a private, public and nonprofit coalition to promote workforce diversity initiatives.

"The UT College of Pharmacy gave us an excellent pharmacy education, and it has encouraged pharmacists to expand their practice with new clinical services."
