To better reflect its roles in providing cancer care to patients; researching better ways to detect, deter and defeat cancer; and educating Mississippi oncology professionals in providing state-of-the-art cancer therapies, the UMMC Cancer Institute has changed its name to the UMMC Cancer Center and Research Institute.
R136, located in the original School of Medicine, has a new name: the J. Lincoln Arceneaux Conference Room, to which its namesake added his personal touch during his distinguished Medical Center career. A ceremony marking the christening was held on a storm-tossed Thursday – a day in perfect contrast to the self-possessed man being honored.
School of Nursing alumna Vicki Randle Bee’s love of children and nursing are being memorialized with a gift from her husband, Alon Bee, Campaign for Children’s of Mississippi Steering Committee member, and their children, which will help create space for the state’s smallest and most critically ill babies and their families.
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.
A national radiologic technologist society bestows a coveted leadership program spot on a UMMC student; graduate studies faculty, fellows and students garner multiple awards at a national experimental biology conference; medical laboratory science faculty and students receive kudos and election to bi-state positions at a clinical laboratory science meeting; and the entire class of fourth-year dental hygiene students pass an important exam.
