Community Events

Each year University of Mississippi Medical Center Grenada helps to build a healthier Grenada by sponsoring several events for the community and businesses and industries in the service area. At certain times during the year, area residents can take advantage of a variety of reduced price or free health screenings. These screenings include, but are not limited to: Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Glucose, Skin Cancer, and Prostate. The screenings are usually scheduled to coincide with the national emphasis on these health topics. UMMC Grenada strives to promote community health and awareness by offering Heartsaver CPR and First Aid classes several times during the year. To learn more about free or reduced price screenings, or CPR and First Aid, please contact Deandra Gibson, RN of the Nursing Education Department.
