Tunica County honored one of its own last Sunday, when Dr. Galen Henderson of Boston was added to the Tunica Museum’s permanent “Sons and Daughters” exhibit.
Dr. Henderson, a 1985 graduate of Rosa Fort High School, went on to graduate from Brown University Medical School and currently practices at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he is chief of the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit and the Division of Critical Care and Emergency Neurology.
Dr. Henderson is also on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and an internationally known medical educator and researcher.
Dr. Henderson was welcomed home by his cousin, county supervisor Cedric Burnett; mentor and friend Wilfred Turner; his aunt, State Rep. Clara Burnett; and Sheriff K.C. Hamp.
