You’re invited: Free concert to benefit the HOPE Collaborative

January 23, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

All Michigan Medicine employees are invited to a free event at Hill Auditorium on Feb. 12.

The event is “A Concert for HOPE,” and it will feature the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, Adam Foss, J.D., and others. It is designed to build awareness and support for the HOPE Collaborative at Michigan Medicine.

The HOPE (health equity, opportunity, pipeline and education) Collaborative’s goals are threefold:

  • Develop, strengthen, and study early pipeline and youth educational programs for medicine
  • Broaden Michigan Medicine’s clinical reach and engagement of community partners for at-risk neighborhoods
  • Diversify training programs and trainee recruitment.

The guest performers and speakers will inspire and build excitement around the opportunities for underrepresented minorities in medicine

For instance, Foss is a renowned prosecutor and criminal-justice reform advocate who founded Prosecutor Impact — a non-profit focused on training prosecutors to reframe their role in the criminal justice system to focus on metrics beyond “cases won.”

This event is free, but there will be opportunities to support the mission through donations.
