JACKSON, Miss. – Officials with UMMC announced recently the opening of The MIND Center Clinic, which offers comprehensive evaluation and innovative treatment to patients with a range of conditions affecting memory and cognition including Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Led by Dr. Gwen Windham, The MIND Center Clinic’s expert team is comprised of specially trained physicians, nurses and social workers that provide thorough assessment, diagnosis and comprehensive treatment, as well as family and caregivers support through counseling, education and guidance.
The MIND Center at UMMC originally was funded through a $9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health that was awarded in July 2010. The University of Mississippi Medical Center and four collaborating academic medical centers were tasked with identifying risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of cognitive decline.
