Football is king in Mississippi, but with that distinction comes the inevitable injuries suffered by players. The same is true for other fall sports such as soccer, track and basketball. Doctors at UMMC see a variety of common sports injuries as they staff the sidelines of local football fields, and they offer their expertise on how to manage concussions to torn ligaments.
Objects you come in contact with every day may be storehouses of the stuff that flu, colds and staph infections are made of. The No. 1 way germs are spread is with our hands. UMMC's infectious disease experts say your best defense is to keep your hands clean. Wash them well and often.
Dr. Laura Newman may be a new faculty member in pediatrics at UMMC, but she knows the campus well. Through medical school, residency and fellowship, the Greenville native has been a part of the Medical Center campus for about a decade.
UMMC garnered 66 new, renewed and continuing grants and awards during January-March 2018, totaling $9,249,877.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming weeks at the Medical Center.
Medical Center leadership is proud to announce the following additions to its faculty and leadership staff.
