When a rogue wisdom tooth sent Wilbert McGee to the dentist in 1979, all of his teeth ended up being removed. Forty years later, the sheet rock installer is getting a free set of dentures through the School of Dentistry at UMMC. Fourth-year students are making the dentures and handling the clinical care of special patients in need, learning lessons that will carry into their residencies or private practice.
Self-care is an important part of health for nurses and their patients. With that in mind, the Sarah Elizabeth Allison Foundation is giving the School of Nursing $600,000 toward a self-care and wellness lab to promote resilience.
Whether regular bathroom cleaning supplies or everyday personal beauty products, many of the items found in most American households can become dangerous if used improperly. Mississippi Poison Control Center experts at UMMC explain why it’s important for consumers to read every label on these products and use them only as directed.
