Twice a week, dozens of low-income Livingston County residents in need of medical care visit U-M’s Student-Run Free Clinic. More than 500 patients are seen each year for regular checkups, sick visits, x-rays, and lab and other diagnostic tests at no charge. This video explores how the clinic is a safety net for the community.
Making Blue go
As they go about their daily routines, students may not be aware of the myriad behind-the-scenes work to support their U-M experience. To provide a better understanding, and as their way of saying “thank you,” two interns in the chief financial officer’s office put together this video focusing — through the eyes of students — on the many ways staff help “make Blue go.”
Frog takes first
In the race to the photo finish, an amphibian hopped to the lead of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology’s Photographer at Large Contest. This photo by doctoral student John David Curlis, titled “King of the Mountain: The Exquisite Spike-thumb Frog (Plectrohyla exquisita),” won first place and was shot at Cusuco National Park, Honduras.
