Primary Care Update: Pharmacology, Psychiatry, & Internal Medicine
May 27, 2017 - May 29, 2017
Nashville, Tennessee - Loews Vanderbilt Hotel
Whiskey and country tunes are just a small part of what makes this vibrant city tick. The Cumberland River slicing right through its epicenter provides ample opportunity for water outings—not to mention stunning skyline views, best glimpsed from the pedestrian bridge—as does the nearby Percy Priest Lake. Downtown’s famed “Honky Tonky Row,” which runs down Broadway to the riverfront with additional live music venues spilling over onto Second Avenue. But there’s much more to Nashville than the bright lights of Lower Broad. Immerse yourself in old and new Nashville at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel—your stage for exploring this vibrant. Located across from Vanderbilt University in the West End—minutes from the city’s most renowned attractions.
