Anderson's chief executive officer, Ray Humphreys, says the center is a vital asset for Meridian and its neighbors.
"The east Mississippi, west Alabama that we serve, along with the entire state of Mississippi, has the highest instances of diabetes over any state in the United States," said Anderson CEO, Ray Humphreys.
