Tennessee is the country music capital of the world and the largest public utility supplier in the United States. Bordering 9 other states, Tennessee offers residents a rich cultural experience. Bounded by the Mississippi River on the west and the Great Smoky Mountains on the east, Tennessee is an excellent choice for residents who enjoy the outdoors in addition to their studies. NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine’s health center partners in Tennessee are located in Nashville, the capital, and Memphis. It was reported in 2014 that Nashville's poverty rate has improved slightly, but almost one-fifth of households remain under the poverty line, while Memphis was listed as the poorest in the nation for cities with a population less than 1 million. In 2013, 17.8% of people in Tennessee had incomes below the poverty line ($23,834 for a family of four) and 27% of people under age 65 and below 138% of the poverty line did not have health insurance. NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine and its health center partners help to ensure equitable and affordable dental care while enhancing and honing the skills of postdoctoral dental practitioners.
