Well Aware with Michigan Medicine

Well Aware Series


In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Michigan Medicine has created an informational series to connect experts with our patients, donors and friends. This is an opportunity to engage with a panel of speakers — anchored by Michigan Medicine leadership — who bring research, experience and recommendations on today’s topics relevant to improving the health of people here and around the globe.


COVID-19 One Year Later: Looking Back, Looking Forward

Thursday, March 11, 2021 - 1:00 pm


Our experts will discuss what we know about COVID-19, one year after Michigan Medicine treated our first patient who had the disease. They will talk about vaccines, new variants of the virus, health disparities, and more. A live Q&A will follow the speakers’ presentations.
