It’s Patient Safety Week, five days of both fun and focus on keeping all of the Medical Center’s patients safe from harm during their time in UMMC's hospitals and clinics.
Allie Henderson went from being a healthy eighth-grader to an intensive care patient in a matter of days after she first experienced symptoms of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children. UMMC experts say the symptoms of MIS-C, a rare condition thought to be a delayed reaction to an earlier COVID-19 infection, shouldn’t be ignored.
Raising funds throughout central Mississippi to benefit the state’s only children’s hospital, the 20th annual Mississippi Miracles Radiothon broadcast patients’ stories of hope from the community room of the Kathy and Joe Sanderson Tower of Children’s of Mississippi. Although the last 12 months have been challenging for the state’s residents, Mississippians once again showed their generosity, besting their previous year's contribution.
The Medical Center extends its sympathy to the family of a former faculty member in appreciation for the loved one’s contributions to the academic health sciences center.
A research article by faculty and students in the MRI Program has been selected for a Distinguished Author Award, a School of Dentistry student has become the first Mississippian to receive an ADA New Investigator Award and several other SOD students have earned Research Day honors.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming week 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 March 8-14.
