Whether you’re a child struggling with a life-threatening disease, an adult recovering from a transplant or a nurse at the end of a 12-hour shift, a friendly face is often the best medicine. But when you get a sweet nuzzle from the nose of a dog, it’s even better. Pet therapy brings joy and comfort to the UMMC family, especially to patients young and old.
The son and niece of a former nursing program coordinator at UMMC have ensured a lasting legacy for their loved one by helping outfit the School of Health Related Professions computer laboratory with chairs and monitor arms. The donation will enhance SHRP students' experience in the relocated lab - and teach a lesson or two in ergonomics, to boot.
The MIND Center staff at UMMC designed a Mississippi specialty car tag, the proceeds of which will go toward Alzheimer’s disease research and clinical care. They are now seeking nominations of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers to receive a complimentary tag.
The Medical Center extends its sympathy to the family of a former staff member in appreciation for its loved one's contributions to the academic health sciences center.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming weeks at the Medical Center.
Medical Center leadership is proud to acknowledge those employees who will celebrate service anniversaries during the week of Aug. 26-Sept. 1.
