Michigan Engaging Community Through the Classroom

The Michigan Public Health Training Center funded a collaborative project in which School of Public Health graduate students conducted a preliminary Health Impact Assessment based on readily available information for nearby Willow Run, MI. This Winter Term 2013 project is part of a broader University of Michigan effort called Engaging Community Through the Classroom (MECC). The MECC initiative is a multi-disciplinary, community service and teaching initiative at the University of Michigan. Seven public health students from the Environmental Health Sciences and Health Behavior and Health Education departments worked in partnership with community stakeholders and other academic units at the University of Michigan on a community-driven project in Willow Run, MI.
