University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones comments on Dr. Ed Thompson
By Patrice Guilfoyle
Comment from University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones: "Mississippi has lost an icon in medicine. Dr. Thompson provided leadership for our state's and our nation's health through a long and distinguished career. His influence will be greatly missed. Among his roles, we were proud that he was a member of the faculty of the University of Mississippi Medical Center, serving as chair of the Department Preventive Medicine from 2007-08."
