Ehrenfeld, director of VUMC’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) health program, received a Diversity Champion Award, which recognizes leaders who have made outstanding contributions in leadership and workplace diversity and inclusion and demonstrated commitment to a diverse workforce.

In all, the THA honored 26 hospital administrators, employees and volunteers during its 2017 Annual Meeting.

The THA was established in 1938 as a not-for-profit membership association, to serve as an advocate for hospitals, health systems and other health care organizations and the patients they serve. The association also provides education and information for its members, and informs the public about hospitals and health care issues at the state and national levels.
