About William Frist

William Frist Biography

Doctor, educator, public servant, and passionate humanitarian, Senator Bill Frist is all of these things. He is a former U.S. Senate Majority Leader and a well-respected heart and lung transplant specialist. Senator Frist, one of the most important figures in American healthcare, has a special qualification to address the problems and answers in healthcare policy. Dr. Frist is a member of the public. The first doctor to serve in the U.S. Senate since 1928, he represented Tennessee for 12 years and sat on both committees that drafted health legislation (Health and Finance). He was elected Senate Majority Leader despite having spent fewer years in Congress overall than any other individual to hold that position in history. His leadership was crucial in securing funds for the worldwide and domestic battle against HIV, as well as the enactment of regulations governing prescription drugs. At Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Senator Frist majored in health policy. He later graduated with honors from Harvard Medical School and under Dr. Norm Shumway at Massachusetts General Hospital and Stanford University, where he completed advanced surgical fellowships. After moving back to Nashville, he established and oversaw the Vanderbilt Transplant Center, where he carried out more than 150 heart and lung transplants and wrote more than 100 peer-reviewed medical articles as well as seven books on leadership, bioterrorism, and transplantation. He holds both general and cardiac surgery board certifications. Senator Frist is now concentrating on a number of issues, including health reform, the fundamentals of heart transplantation, global health policy, K–12 education reform, economic growth in low-income countries, healthcare inequities, and international medical missions. The Tennessee State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE), Hope Through Healing Hands in Nashville, the Newborn and Child Survival campaign of Save the Children, and Senator Frist's own "Partnership for a Healthier America" initiative to end childhood obesity are all headed by the senator. He also serves as co-chair of the Bipartisan Policy Center Health Project in Washington, DC. In addition to his yearly journeys to Africa on medical missions, he frequently visited Haiti. In 2010, he went there as a volunteer doctor in the wake of a severe earthquake. He now sits on the boards of the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Harvard Medical School Board of Fellows, and the Duke and Harvard Advisory Committees for Global Health are more boards that require service. He traveled to New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, Sri Lanka following the Indian Ocean tsunami, Sudan during the civil war, Haiti following the earthquake, and Kenya/Somalia during the 2011 famine, among other disasters. Dr. Frist is a passionate educator. He held the positions of University Distinguished Professor of Business and Medicine at Vanderbilt University from 2008 to 2010, as well as the Frederick H. Schultz Professor of International Economic Policy at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs from 2008 to 2010. He presently holds the position of Clinical Professor of Surgery at Meharry Medical College in Nashville as well as Adjunct Professor of Surgery in the Department of Cardiac Surgery at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. The mid-market investment company Cressey & Company, LP, which focuses on healthcare services, has Senator Frist as a Partner. Additionally, he serves on the advisory boards of two cutting-edge healthcare startups, ZocDoc and therapy.
