Just kid-ding around: Children have fun-filled day at Michigan Medicine

Some children attended meetings for the first time. Others got to “perform surgery” on teddy bears and other stuffed animals or work on “research” projects at the North Campus Research Complex. And even more rode the bus – not to school, but to work.

It was all part of Bring Your Child to Work Day at Michigan Medicine, where boys and girls learned some of the fun and important things their moms and dads do on a daily basis.

As part of the festivities on April 26, employees snapped photos of their kids at work and sent them to Headlines. Congratulations to the following faculty and staff, who submitted photos and will win movie tickets or other great prizes! For those on the list, a representative from the Department of Communication will be reaching out to you shortly to arrange collecting your prize.

And be sure to check out the photo gallery above for a closer look at kids at work!
