2022 in Review: The Wrap employee podcast, Employees @ Michigan Medicine Facebook page

December 21, 2022  //  FOUND IN: News, ,

All week, Headlines is recapping everything that took place at Michigan Medicine in 2022. 

From epic videos to eye-catching photos, in-depth interviews and engaging social media posts, there have been a plethora of ways we have celebrated the faculty, staff and learners who carry out the organization’s mission of advancing health to serve Michigan and the world.

Today, Headlines is taking a look back at highlights from two of the organization’s newer communication channels – The Wrap employee podcast and the Employees @ Michigan Medicine Facebook page.

Wrapping up the year on The Wrap

With 40+ episodes featuring more than 100 guests, The Wrap employee podcast was the home of important discussions throughout the year.

For instance, 2022 kicked off with a conversation with U-M Health President David Miller, M.D., who shared his gratitude for the hard work of faculty and staff amid another COVID-19 surge. Miller returned in October to give listeners insight into the organization’s strategic priorities – and how they can play a role moving forward. The year closed out by giving retiring Chief Medical Officer Jeff Desmond, M.D., a chance to reflect on nearly 30 years at Michigan Medicine.

But The Wrap featured a lot more than just Michigan Medicine leaders. Team members came on to discuss issues that are often overlooked, such as substance use disorder, mental health challenges and how we can all work to improve the health of the LGBTQ+ community.

U-M undergraduates behind The Spark music video – which was dedicated to front-line health care workers – also shared how they were inspired by our colleagues and wanted to give back in any way they could.

There was even a new series on The Wrap called Parents and Caregivers on the Front Lines, which covered topics such as preparing your kids for college, dealing with the stress of the holiday season and parenting challenges for early-career faculty members.
