Nehemiah Thrash, Jr. M.D.
ACCESS Alumnus
Education: 
Churchland High School; B.S., Virginia Tech; M.D., Eastern Virginia Medical School
Current Position: 

Internal Medicine, Hospitalist at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News

Proudest Moment: 

Becoming the first college graduate in my family.

Making a Difference: 

In addition to continually striving to become a more excellent husband, father and physician, one day I would like to return to my hometown of Portsmouth and open a clinic to serve those in need. I would also like to play a role in improving the public education system.

“I like to tell people, ‘ACCESS found me.’ I always had big dreams about my future. I was a student in need of a scholarship and doing well in school, but not performing at a level that readily commands the large scholarship funds I needed. My ACCESS Advisor helped me navigate every step of the way, from applying for college acceptance, to finding the money necessary to complete my education at Virginia Tech. ACCESS was always there supporting me with genuine interest, advice and practical assistance. I am grateful.”
