A graduate of Carver High School has returned to Columbus to be an orthopaedic surgeon at St. Francis Hospital.
Dr. Tamara Huff has joined the St. Francis Orthopaedic Institute.
She is the daughter of Muscogee County Tax Commissioner Lula Huff and Charles Huff Jr.
“It is a privilege and honor to come back to Columbus to take care of the people who’ve taken care of me,” Tamara Huff said in a news release.
As a teen, Huff worked as a candy striper at St. Francis.
While at Carver, she shadowed now retired surgeon Dr. Emory Alexander for four years.
