"I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing team at UMMC where we strive to provide well-rounded care to Mississippians for a wide spectrum of gastrointestinal and liver disorders. Being the only liver transplant center in the state, we are fortunate to be able to offer this service to its residents. I truly enjoy the work culture and camaraderie between faculty, trainees and nursing staff."
