Week in Review: Week of Feb. 3, 2020

February 7, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

The first full week of February served as a chance to honor those who stand out at Michigan Medicine.

To kick-off the week — and in the wake of Super Bowl LIV — employees were asked to nominate the MVPs and superstars in their unit or department. Later on, faculty and staff were recognized for making a difference in January. In between, readers learned how experts helped a 1-year-old hear for the first time thanks to cochlear implants, and team members were given insight into changes made since the 2019 Employee Engagement Survey.

In case you missed anything, here’s the latest!
