The central objective of the Healthy Michigan Plan is to improve the health and well-being of Michigan residents by extending health care coverage to low-income adults who are uninsured or underinsured. The program also introduces a number of reforms, including cost-sharing for individuals with incomes above the Federal Poverty Level, the creation of individual MI Health Accounts to record health care expenses and cost-sharing contributions, and opportunities for beneficiaries to reduce their cost-sharing by completing health risk assessments and engaging in healthy behaviors. This project conducts the evaluation of Michigan's Medicaid expansion, the Healthy Michigan Plan (HMP).

Check out the recent panel on sexual harassment in medicine (video link below)! Panelists included CBSSM's Reshma Jagsi and Tim R.B. Johnson, as well as Paula Johnson, president of Wellesley College and moderator, Anna Kirkland, Director of IRWG.

recent report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine identified the causes and impacts of sexual harassment — and offered recommendations for institutional policies, strategies, and practices to address and prevent it.

Academic sciences, engineering and medicine share characteristics that create conditions for harassment. Such environments can silence and limit the career opportunities for both the targets of the sexual harassment and bystanders, causing both men and women to leave their fields.

An panel discussion took a closer look at this subject and reflected on progress being made at U-M in relation to the report.
