Coming Attraction: 2017 Ice Cream Social

August 2, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees,

Michigan Medicine is rolling out the red carpet for employees at the upcoming annual Ice Cream Social and Researchpalooza events, which take place on Wednesday, Aug. 16. This year’s Hollywood theme is all about recognizing the stars of the show — YOU!

Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and innovations at Michigan Medicine, thanks to the hard work and dedication of you and your colleagues.

You can enjoy the outdoors, connect with your coworkers, snap a few pictures on the red carpet (literally!), and check out department and vendor tables for information and giveaways.

New this year is a raffle for themed gift baskets donated by vendors and departments as a token of their appreciation. You can check out the gift basket display from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the hospital courtyard. All employees are automatically entered in the raffle. Winners will be announced in Headlines on Monday, Aug. 21.

Michigan Medicine succeeds because of you. Be sure to take some time out of your day to celebrate — you deserve it!
