Week in Review: Remote work policy; patient recounts cancer journey — and more!

July 23, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

Happy Friday! Before you turn your attention to the first few days of the Summer Olympics, be sure to dive into this week’s featured Headlines stories. For instance, the newsletter put a spotlight on the organization’s new remote work policy, which will help departments create flexible work environments for their employees.

A patient also shared how faculty and staff led him through his journey at the Rogel Cancer Center; employees were honored for scoring high marks in innovation over the past few weeks; and readers heard from the team behind the Employees @ Michigan Medicine Facebook page, which is celebrating its two-year anniversary.

In case you missed anything, flip on through the Week in Review:

Check out his remarkable story.
