About

Healthology is where science, practice, and social interests meet. The Healthology Symposium provides a culminating focus for faculty, students and community partners to celebrate impactful research and scholarship that affect health outcomes. For 2018, our theme is “Better Upstream Health, Better Downstream Care.” The symposium will open with a public forum led by prominent TedTalk speaker, Rishi Manchanda, M.D., MPH, president and founder of Health Begins, and an “upstreamist.” The following day, health care leaders, community service agencies, payers, employers, and elected officials from Michigan and across the country, will gather to discuss the importance of addressing the “upstream” social determinants of health in promoting better “downstream” care. This symposium is a call for public awareness and for professional action.
