The School of Medicine child advocacy group UMMC CARES networked around the state and throughout the country to collect more than 800 toys for Children’s of Mississippi Safe Center patients. CARES, an acronym for Child Advocates Relentlessly Empowering Survivors, is working to raise awareness of the impact of adverse childhood experiences and the need for trauma-informed care.
