New year, new opportunity! The Citizens Research Council is doing something new this year to further engage with our wonderful boards. As you know, the Board of Directors and Council of Trustees are comprised of many individuals that are leaders in their fields. Our newfound embrace of online meeting technology allows us to gather together all Research Council friends, without travel hassles, to hear from individual members of our leadership boards. We are introducing an informal speaker series tailored to highlight the important work of our Directors and Trustees.
The first (of hopefully many more) will be on February 5, at noon, Laura Appel, Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer for the Michigan Health & Hospital Association and Treasurer of the Research Council’s Board of Directors, will discuss current affairs for our health and hospital providers. Do they still lack PPE? What are the hold ups in rolling out vaccines?
