Even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, UMMC continues to provide vital health care services to adults and children in Mississippi. While some of those services may come in uncustomary forms, such as telehealth, the Medical Center's necessary work continues.
People with chronic diseases and those whose immune systems are suppressed have a higher mortality rate from the COVID-19 virus than people without those complicating factors. UMMC experts promote suggestions for avoiding exposure to the novel coronavirus.
Donors helping UMMC through its COVID-19 Recovery Support Fund are now seeing double. Their gifts will be matched dollar for dollar - up to $50,000 - by Regions Bank. The effort is helping the Medical Center respond to the novel coronavirus outbreak by funding purchases of medical equipment and supplies.
Mississippians caring for loved ones with dementia during the COVID-19 pandemic are finding themselves asking overwhelming questions. Do I keep my in-home help or is it too dangerous? How do I deal with the guilt and fear I feel when I can't see my loved one? Dr. Kim Tarver took to Facebook Live last week to offer advice and words of encouragement.
