I write this week with a hopeful and optimistic outlook for what the month of May will bring to the University of Michigan, our state and the country. While going back to “normal” is not a reasonable expectation, we can look to create a new normal, as suggested by Michigan Medicine CEO Dr. Marschall Runge.
Two weeks ago Michigan Medicine experts were discussing the leveling off of COVID-19 cases, and now we are on the downward slope of the curve. We have discharged nearly 400 patients and there are less than 100 individuals in our care today. I am very proud to be part of a medical staff that provides such tremendous care and continuously finds solutions in the most difficult of situations.
