A rainbow-colored beam-signing party last Thursday kicked off preparations for "Growing Up Together," a celebration of UMMC’s seven-story pediatric expansion's topping off. The beam will remain in the Rainbow Garden before the June 27 ceremony, to be followed by a fundraising reception at the Railroad District in downtown Jackson.
eCV, the Medical Center's twice-weekly electronic newsletter, will move to a weekly distribution pattern for the summer beginning with this issue of Monday, June 6.
UMMC's family medicine staff have found a tool to help improve care and efficiency. Visual management boards - marker boards about three feet long placed on a clinic wall - are physically simple.

Society can be fast-paced, but that doesn’t mean mealtime should be, too. Ingesting too much food in a short period of time can result in unintended weight gain.

Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming weeks at the Medical Center.
Medical Center leadership is proud to announce the following addition to its faculty and leadership staff.
Medical Center leadership is proud to acknowledge those employees who will celebrate service anniversaries during the week of June 10-16.
