Dr. Andrew Brown has authored a timely article in the American College of Cardiology magazine discussing burnout, wellness, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The article, entitled “Wellness For Cardiovascular Trainees in the Era of COVID-19” discusses Mississippi’s experience with the pandemic as well as national cardiology fellows-in-training (FITS) wellness data and potential actions, both systemic and individual to combat burnout.

The Trailblazer Teaching Award recognizes educators who have demonstrated a record of innovating, engaging, and inspiring others through their service to students in the School of Medicine.  Ten faculty were awarded this year from the Department of Medicine.

Congratulations to the many trainees and faculty who presented or presided at the Southern Regional Meeting and Southern Society of General Internal Medicine meetings last month in New Orleans, Louisiana.

My husband asked after breakfast, “Why do you have to work today? Weren’t you on call last week?”  I was going to help out at the Jackson Free Clinic. Being at the JFC doesn’t feel like work. If you have ever been there, you know what I mean. 

Dr. Michael Hall, Associate Professor of Medicine and Associate Division Director of Cardiovascular Diseases, has been appointed Interim Chair of Medicine effective March 1, 2022.

Dr. Gabriel Hernandez is a University Heart interventional cardiologist who specializes in advanced heart failure and transplant and serves as an associate program director for the cardiology fellowship program.

One of the consequences of the internet is that news travels fast. These days, we learn within seconds about mass shootings, wildfires spurring out of control, airplane crashes, or hurricanes waiting to make landfall.

If you are over 30 years old, you likely recall vividly what you were doing you when our country was hit with one of the most horrific tragedies we had ever seen.

Congratulations to these faculty chosen for induction into the UMMC School of Medicine Alumni Hall of Fame!
