MTCSF advocates for improvements to the Mississippi Trauma System of Care. Through collaboration with stakeholders across the trauma system of care, MTCSF publicly supports and recommends policy changes to improve trauma system efficiency and quality. MTCSF is a communication pipeline to quickly and precisely identify statewide or local advocacy opportunities requiring legislative action.

 MTCSF continually advocates for preventing traumatic events through media awareness programs and publications, survivor stories, and local citizen education.

Our advocacy efforts include partnerships and creating trust, and working together effectively.  The limitation of in-person events with legislative bodies due to COVID-19 restrictions is hampering current advocacy efforts for funding.  MTCSF continues to advocate for the prevention of traumatic events, support educational enhancements in the healthcare and public communities, and encourage funding through efficient management of currently provided Trauma Care Trust Fund distribution.
