Most people who receive the COVID-19 immunization do so to protect themselves and their loved ones from the deadly virus. At an academic medical center, there’s so much more at stake. Being protected by the vaccine means you’re extremely unlikely to pass COVID-19 on to fellow students, employees and another group we hold dear: our patients.

With a multimillion-dollar grant, the School of Medicine is now able to, among other things, expose more students to patient care in rural clinics, an effort educators believe will persuade many to one day open their practices there.
For those undergoing chemotherapy or immunotherapy infusions, traveling hours for care can cause stress and inconvenience. Cancer patients in the Grenada region now have a number of treatment options close to home delivered by a dedicated UMMC team that includes physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and laboratory staff.
