On Monday, Headlines highlighted the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic, a team of faculty and staff who prove that work at Michigan Medicine is always “better together.”

Headlines also highlighted the Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience, which works with faculty and staff to help them manage Seasonal Affective Disorder; and the latest installment of the Headlines Acronym of the Month gave a rundown of federal agencies that Michigan Medicine collaborates with on a regular basis to carry out exceptional patient care, education and research.
