In order to comply with the University of Tennessee’s temporary COVID-19 policy, we are now working remotely. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and encourage you to email ehhsappts@utk.edu for general questions or a member of our staff for more detailed questions.

You are also welcome to call 865-974-8194 and leave a voicemail as we will regularly check messages.

As a note, we will likely be able to respond to email inquiries more quickly than phone inquiries at this time.
