Dr. Terry Douglass speaks to Carson-Newman graduates

“God’s expectations for you may not be the same as the expectations you have for yourself,” proclaimed Knoxville’s Dr. Terry Douglass, CEO of ProNova Solutions, LLC, addressing some 50 graduates during Carson-Newman’s graduate commencement. “We all want to live up to God’s expectations,” he said.

The service was held Thursday, December 14, in the sanctuary of Jefferson City’s First Baptist Church.

Douglass pointed graduates to the passage Micah 6:8, and reminded them that God has shown what is good. He encouraged them to “act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly.”

Along with his leadership at ProNova, Douglass serves as president of ProVision Healthcare, LLC and ProVision Trust, Inc. During his career he has served on multiple boards, as well as president and CEO of CTI Molecular Imaging, where he helped develop and commercialize positron emission tomography (PET) technology, including the development of PET cyclotron technology, and PET radiopharmaceutical delivery. He has been a strong supporter of the University of Tennessee and UT Medical Center’s Biomedical Research Center. He is currently leading the development of a world-class comprehensive cancer care program located at the East Tennessee Healthcare Center at Dowell Springs in Knoxville, which will include a proton therapy center. Proton therapy is an advanced form of radiation that treats various forms of cancer.

Douglass graduated with his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Tennessee.
