Mississippi Cancer Prevention Network helps underserved delta residents | Schools
Freddie White-Johnson believes that The University of Southern Mississippi’s mission to illuminate and educate young minds is further enriched by its role as a life-saver.
And White-Johnson, program director of the Mississippi Network for Cancer Control and Prevention, will not rest until every underserved Mississippian becomes aware of the measures available in the fight against cancer.
“The University of Southern Mississippi is saving lives through education, outreach and research,” said White-Johnson. “Outreach is one way of building a connection between the institution and the community base. Southern Miss has stepped outside the box into the community to support, promote and link community health workers/advisors, known as natural helpers, to improve the lives of individuals, families and entire communities.”
