Week in Review: Week of Aug. 19, 2019

August 23, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

School is almost back in session, and this week readers were “schooled” on all that’s going on at Michigan Medicine!

For instance, employees learned how they can help area children through the annual school supply drive; team members were taught how they can help play a role during the organization’s journey to high reliability; faculty and staff were given a history lesson about the North Campus Research Complex — just in time for its 10th anniversary; and readers were prepped for next week’s student move-in.

In case you missed any of that, here’s the latest!
