Former Ole Miss legend Archie Manning is working with Dr. Dan Jones, chancellor of the University of Mississippi, and Dr. James Keeton, University of Mississippi Medical Center vice chancellor for health affairs, to launch the Manning Family Fund for a Healthier Mississippi, a campaign to help improve the health of the state’s residents.

The Manning Family Fund for a Healthier Mississippi will help UMMC attain the resources needed to battle a variety of health-care challenges Mississippians frequently face, including heart disease, hypertension, obesity, low birth weight and more.

UMMC will host a press conference today at 4:45 p.m. in the Verner S. Holmes Learning Resource Center on the UMMC campus (2500 N. State St.), followed by a 5:30 p.m. event to formally introduce the initiative to the UMMC community and its supporters.
