May 6, 2021  //  FOUND IN: News

The Michigan Health and Michigan Health Lab blogs are celebrating 5 years of health/wellness stories and medical news!

For the last five years, Michigan Medicine’s Michigan Health blog has published stories of inspiring patient journeys and recoveries, tips on how to lead a healthy life and expertise from our care professionals.

Since its launch, the blog has brought readers over 1,500 posts. Its sister blog, the Michigan Health Lab, which is celebrating the same anniversary, has published over 1,700 stories.

In that span, the blogs have brought readers health advice from U-M experts, inspiring patient stories and information about cutting-edge research. In all, more than 3,200 posts have been published on the two platforms!

Beginning with the Health blog’s very first story (Still Up? Try These 4 Sleeping Tips) to the latest (Who Has a Right to Ask if You’re Vaccinated?), articles have run the gamut from expert commentary on breaking news stories, to how to stay heart healthy and how to spot the early warning signs of psychosis, to articles about the pandemic and moving patient stories, like the surgical separation of conjoined 1-year-old sisters.

For the Health Lab blog, stories have ranged from microbiologists working to protect the military and seemingly impenetrable diseases, to national polls on public health issuestrustworthy COVID-19 updates and more.
