Orthotics additions: ABC accreditation, residency director


The UMMC Orthopedic Division of Orthotics and Prosthetics recently passed the American Board of Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics site accreditation with 100-percent compliance.

In conjunction with the accreditation, the Orthotics and Prosthetics Residency Program's accreditation was renewed by the National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education.

A relatively new program in the School of Health Related Professions, the Orthotics and Prosthetics Residency Program recently acquired a new residency director, Dr. Stephen “Bret” Lee. Currently, there are two residents in UMMC's O and P program.



Credit Union fetes retired pediatric surgeon


Dr. Richard C. Miller, retired UMMC pediatric surgeon and longtime member of the Mississippi Federal Credit Union, was recently named Board Member Emeritus to the credit union in honor of his many years of dedicated service.



Rad sciences student makes strides, earns distinction


Will Lindsey, a first-year radiologic sciences student and former participant in the UMMC Health Equity and Leadership Initiative (HELI), is one of two students in Mississippi selected by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists to participate in ASRT's upcoming Student Leadership Development Program in June in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The radiologic sciences class president was also elected one of two Mississippi Society of Radiologic Technologists student delegates at the MSRT's 74th annual conference last October in Tupelo.

Lindsey was recently selected for membership in the Medical Center's Student Alumni Representative (STARS) organization to “connect, communicate and collaborate with UMMC alumni and the UMMC community.”

"I am extremely proud of the initiative taken by Will Lindsey in seeking out these leadership opportunities,” said Dr. Kristi Moore, chair and associate professor of the Department of Radiologic Sciences.
