Elliott Brannon, MPH, Receives DEI Mini-Grant

At the recent Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Symposium HILS PhD student Elliott Brannon, MPH, received a DEI Mini-Grant to support his summer implementation project.

Brannon's summer implementation project, which is a requirement of the HILS (Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems) curriculum, facilitates a web-based program that randomly pairs individuals across U-M to make connections and form relationships through “meet and greets” over coffee or lunch.  The DEI symposium was held April 24 in the Ford Auditorium and is sponsored by Michigan Medicine’s Office for Health Equity and Inclusion. 

"The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Mini‐Grant Program provides an opportunity to acknowledge, inform, reinvigorate and refocus departmental and unit efforts on activities that promote respect for and learning about others. The grant program is funded by the Office of the Executive Vice‐President for Medical Affairs and the Dean of the Medical School."
