  • Office of Population Health

    The Office of Population Health (OPH) at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) was established to accelerate the development, implementation and evaluation of evidence-based strategies to advance the health and health care of populations served by UMMC Hospitals and Clinics as well as residents of the state of Mississippi. We seek to fulfill this goal by working across the three main missions of the Medical Center to:

    • Improve health care quality, effectiveness and outcomes through patient education at UMMC affiliated hospitals and ambulatory care facilities;
    • Eliminate health and healthcare disparities through the pursuit of action research, the education of faculty, students, residents, fellows and staff, on the social determinants of health, and through engagement with community stakeholders;
    • Cultivate, nurture, and sustain internal and external partnerships to disseminate health-related information and knowledge intended to improve the health of Mississippians.

    "Miss Evers' Boys"

    The Department of Speech and Theatre at Jackson State University in association with the Myrlie Evers-Williams Institute for the Elimination of Health Disparities invite you to attend the award winning stage play “Miss Evers” Boys." The production examines the U.S. Public Health Service “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male," which was carried out in Macon County, Ala., from 1932 to 1972.
