Neonatal Transport

Education and Outreach

kids---premature-anne.jpgOur Neonate Transport Team is proud to announce the arrival of two Premature Annes and two task trainer Annes.

These Mississippi Department of Health grant funded simulators will allow for a unique hands on experience that is both realistic and informative. As part of UMMC's educational mission our neonate transport team routinely provides education and training in the resuscitation and care of neonate patients for both pre-hospital and in-hospital providers.
