Musgrove to Work as Health Care Scholar

JACKSON (AP) – Former Mississippi Gov. Ronnie Musgrove will work as a policy scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore.

The university says in a news release Thursday that Musgrove will help students and faculty members understand how their work can be translated into public policy on the national level and in the states.

Musgrove, a Democrat, was governor from January 2000 to January 2004, after serving one term as lieutenant governor and two terms as a state senator from north Mississippi’s Panola County. He ran unsuccessfully for a U.S. Senate seat in 2008.

He is an attorney at a law firm in Ridgeland just outside Jackson.
