About Us

The Mississippi Institute for the Improvement of Geographic Minority Health (MIGMH) was established through a competitive grant awarded by the Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health Research in September 2006. The Institute focuses on some of the key indicators of health status in Mississippi and targets mechanisms to increase the knowledge surrounding these conditions along with strategies to improve them.

The MIGMH program is a targeted and multifaceted approach for eliminating health disparities through a multi-partner effort, involving institutions of higher education, state and local health agencies, faith and community-based organizations, healthcare organizations, and other stakeholders.
