Health Care in Mississippi: What You Need to Know

Joining President LaForge is Dr. LouAnn Woodward, Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

The Delta State University Colloquia Distinguished Speakers Lecture Series continued last week featuring Dr. LouAnn Woodward, Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Dr. Woodward’s speech titled “Health Care in Mississippi: What You Need to Know” offered our students, faculty, staff, and community an insightful look at the past, present, and future of health care in our state.

Dr. Woodward, who completed her residency and board certification in emergency medicine at the UMMC, has served on the faculty for nearly 20 years. In addition to her role as Vice Chancellor, she also serves as a tenured professor of emergency medicine. Her personal and professional commitment to the medical center, and deep understanding of health care in Mississippi, have helped to keep UMMC at the forefront of health care, education, and research — both in Mississippi and nationwide.
