They want others to help support microsurgical lab

A decade after Dr. John Goudelock severely injured his left hand and University of Mississippi Medical Center surgeons restored most of its function, he returned to UMMC recently to make a gift to purchase a much-needed microsurgical lab as part of his dream for a hand center at UMMC.  Dr. James Keeton, left, thanked Goudelock during the visit and inducted him into the 1848 Society, a group that supports the university through planned and deferred giving. In addition to their gift, Goudelock and his wife, Mary, have challenged others to join with them to make a gift to support the new microsurgical lab. Individuals and organizations that would like to take the couple up on their challenge can contact Sara Merrick, UMMC chief development officer, at 601-984-2302 or to discuss gifts to this important project.


Online gifts for the 2024 calendar year should be made no later than noon on December 31, 2024.  Checks by mail will need to be postmarked by December 31 to be counted in the 2024 calendar year.
