Central Michigan University's Interdisciplinary Center for Community Health and Wellness is collaborating in a public health summit May 11 to focus on improving the health of people in the region.
Joining the health and wellness center will be the Central Michigan District Health Department and the Central Michigan Regional Rural Health Network. The free event will be 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in French Auditorium in the College of Education and Human Services Building. A continental breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. A donation of fresh fruit or vegetables for local food pantries is requested.
The program will include workshops on trauma-informed practices and updates on the opioids epidemic. Speakers from across Michigan will share approaches and models for building community health.
"Connecting CMU's expertise with our community's health priorities and networks is our mission," said Alison Arnold, director of the interdisciplinary center.
