By Camren Clouthier | May 12 2022

The Department of Pathology, in partnership with the Office of Health Equity and Inclusion (OHEI), is proud to participate in the Michigan Medicine Youth Summit on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

Michigan Medicine Youth SummitInspired by the Black Men in White Coats documentary, the day-long summit will engage middle school students from schools across Southeast Michigan with diverse Michigan Medicine healthcare teams. This event will also provide opportunities for students who are under-represented in the health sciences to visit the University of Michigan campus and engage with practitioners through hands-on simulations, personal connections, and curated resources in preparation for medical career paths. Pathology's participation is being co-lead by Karen Barron, Allied Health Education Program Manager, and Jenna Koelsch, a Medical Technologist from the Michigan Medicine Genetics Laboratory.
