More about The MIND Center
Led by Dr. Tom Mosley, a nationally recognized leader in the study of cognitive decline, The MIND Center combines pioneering research, state-of-the-art brain imaging, and genetic technologies to make discoveries about Alzheimer's causes—and potentially change the course of everyone affected by this disease:
- Almost 5 million Americans
- More than 40 million worldwide
The MIND Center Clinic was started in 2013 and offers diagnosis and leading-edge outpatient treatment for patients with memory loss and cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Our multi-disciplinary clinical team includes geriatricians and neurologists, nurse practitioners and social workers, all of whom are highly skilled in caring for patients and families battling Alzheimer’s and dementia.
In 2014, The MIND Center collaborated with the UMMC Center for Telehealth to launch an Alzheimer’s telemedicine program, TeleMIND, which will bring specialized dementia care to patients throughout Mississippi. This innovative program uses secure audiovisual technology to provide remote medical care, health education, and public health services.
