SPH Service Day
Beginning a Great Tradition
More than 200 SPH community members volunteered their time and energy on Saturday, April 1, as part of the school's first-ever Service Day to honor our 75th anniversary. The volunteers—comprised of alumni, students, staff, and faculty—completed a variety of tasks at eight different sites around southeast Michigan, including three in Ann Arbor, two in Flint, and one each in Detroit, Southfield, and Ypsilanti. These eight host communities welcomed our volunteers with open arms and rolled-up sleeves.
SPH Service Day connected participants more deeply with key goals of our school like promoting health and engaging communities. Groups and individuals volunteered in their local communities while representing SPH and connecting with each other outside of classrooms and labs. Planners chose projects that could make a noticeable impact in a single day.
