A message from Dr. Terhune

Hank Ingram House (Hank's House) is the largest house in The Ingram Commons. Despite the size, one of our goals together will be to forge a sense of community, pride, and inclusiveness for all of our members. We'll do this through formal and informal gatherings and opportunities such as trips off campus and dinners with guests discussing their professional and intellectual passions. I'm a general surgeon at Vanderbilt's Medical Center, so we may run into one another at some odd hours as I traipse back and forth to the hospital. I'll be living in Hank's House with my husband of twelve years, Rick Keuler, our two children, Tate and Amelia and our loveable (sometimes too loveable) mutt, Sackson.
