CURIS - Public Health Advocacy Open General Meeting
CURIS - Public Health Advocacy is a student organization open to all U of M students (undergraduate, graduate, any major, any discipline). We work to address a local public health issue by partnering with an organization in the Ann Arbor/Washtenaw County already partnering with the local people. They present current problems that they have and we take one problem and study it for the year to come up with ideas for solutions. This can look like research, writing up policy briefs, writing bills, prepping a presentation, etc. We also try to advocate for the certain public health issue that the organization supports at the U of M campus with health education. This year we are looking to partner with Shelter Association of Washtenaw County. We may look into the prevention of homelessness, housing scarcity, affordability, stigma, etc. We will also participate in the National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week on U of M campus. If you are interested in joining and/or learning more feel free to stop by our General Open Meeting. Here we will share more about our organization, the recruiting process, and stimulate what a general meeting may look like.
