LifeLong Learning Lecture Series - Doctor With Big Shoes

March 28, 2019, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

"Lifelong Learning" is a series of presentations designed to promote learning opportunities for anyone interested in challenging his or her thinking and enhancing brain stimulation. All age groups are encouraged to attend. This event is sponsored by Blount Memorial Senior Services, Maryville College and Vienna Coffee Company.

Dr. Henry Nelson was a young physician assigned to oversee and direct the medical services in a hospital in rural pre-communist China. His benevolence and competence earned him the trust of the provincial people, and he was tagged with the name, “Doctor With Big Shoes.” As a Vanderbilt-educated physician, Nelson practiced medicine in Tai Chow Jiangsu Province of China and the remote regions of the Congo, and will be speaking on Tai Chow then and now. He has chronicled his experiences in an autobiography, “Doctor with Big Shoes: Missionary Experiences in China and Africa."
