WHAt is amplify nashville?

Caring for the medically underserved for over 25 years, Siloam Health has had a front-row seat to the often unsung contributions made by immigrants and refugees to the life of our community. As shapers of where we live, work, eat, and learn, foreign-born Nashvillians have played a vital role in making ours a truly great, global city.

In 2017, Siloam Health launched Amplify Nashville as a way to celebrate the amazing immigrants and refugees who are contributing to a growing and thriving Nashville. In our first year, we were proud to honor Kasar Abdulla for her work with the Welcome Tennessee Initiative, Fabian Bedne as Nashville's first Latino City Council Member, Cano and Esen Ozgener for their contribution to the cultural and economic landscape of Music City through OZ Arts, and Dr. Bob Fisher and Belmont University for their work in helping new Americans find meaningful employment and receive an education.

On April 26, Siloam will host our second annual Amplify Nashville celebration and we hope you will join us!

Help us Amplify Nashville together!
