  • IMPORTANT MEMO
  • The joint hospital team would like to hear from as many Washtenaw County residents as possible in order to narrow their top nine health issues down to two, three, or four top issues for the hospitals to work together to address. We need to get substance use disorders (SUDs) high up on the priority list, because as many of us know, in the past, SUD has been perceived as a moral failing rather than a chronic health issue. It is one of the most underfunded health issues in the United States, so we can use all the help we can get!

    The joint hospital team have created a short survey for you to share with your staff, neighbors, members, constituents, clients, patients, faith institutions, and any other Washtenaw County residents you can reach: Please complete the five-minute survey by Friday, October 30, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern HERE.

    Your voice matters... thank you in advance for taking the time!
