Mississippi’s Epidemiologist is stepping down

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Discussions are underway after word that the state epidemiologist is leaving.

A spokesperson with the Mississippi State Health Department says Dr. Thomas Dobbs hasn’t formally resigned just yet.

They say Dobbs is leaving for personal reasons like being closer to his home in Laurel.

We’re told he will still work for the department as a consultant or communicable diseases specialist.

Dr. Dobbs took over as state epidemiologist back in 2012.
