"Bettering the human condition is the greatest good any individual can ever achieve." -- Thomas F. Frist, Sr., M.D. (1910-1998)
“I love how HTHH is pulling together Music City for global health. And Senator Bill Frist is more than a doctor and more than a politician; he is a Statesman who is not afraid to get his hands dirty. And coming from a farmboy, I can appreciate that.”
--Big Kenny Alphin, Artist and Founder of Love Everybody, LLC
"Whether I'm walking down a dusty road to a health clinic in Ghana, or down a marbled corridor in Washington DC, I seem to run into Bill Frist. Him the doctor and esteemed Senator; me the pestering rock star and activist. To my surprise, he says hello in both places. Not surprising, he is working hard in both geographies to save and improve the lives of the poorest people on the planet. Bill is an inspiration to me and to all of us."
-Bono, Lead Singer of U2 and Co-Founder of the anti-poverty advocacy organization, ONE
"Three cheers for Jenny Dyer, who has joined with Senator Bill Frist in developing the work of Hope Through Healing Hands, a program that is empowering health professionals in needy communities around the world to reach out to their own people! This program that reaches across national borders is an instrument that is building harmony between nations by extending good will, not just in words, but also in deeds."
-Tony Campolo, Professor Emeritus, Eastern University
I have had the privilege of knowing Senator Bill Frist for a number of years and have known many members of his family for most of my life. I have been touched by his compassion and his insight into the complexity of the problems that face our world today. I fully endorse and support his efforts to touch a hurting world through Hope Through Healing Hands."
-Franklin Graham, President and CEO, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan's Purse
"Hope Through Healing Hands work in combating preventable disease and ending extreme poverty using a holistic, integrated model based on partnership is the best and most cost effective way to foster peace and reach vulnerable populations for total poverty reduction; it is the way forward."
