About Dr. Hester

While a nurse at UMAS, she and colleague Dees Davis recognized a need for a better way to assess and manage falls.

The UTHSC LEADS (Launching Entrepreneurial Activities and Discovery in Science) seminar series brings successful and engaging entrepreneurial scientists involved in biotech, life sciences, Pharma and device sectors to UTHSC and relay their "entrepreneurial stories” to our faculty, staff, and students. Specifically, we focus on speakers who have taken an idea from “bench-to-bedside”, connecting research done in the laboratory to develop new ways to treat patients.
