1000 McIntyre St./SPH Community Room

La Salud cordially invites you to this year’s “Dia de Los Muertos” event taking place on November 1st from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM in the School of Public Health’s Community Room 1680. MENA (Middle Eastern and North African) Public Health, La Salud, and PHSAD (Public Health Students of African Descent) have partnered to present a Dia de Los Muertos event which is meant to commemorate all the lives lost to any discrimination or racism in the U.S. and internationally.


Dia de Los Muertos stems from Mexican traditions and originates from Aztec practices. We use this day to celebrate, not mourn, the lives of our beloved departed and rejoice by sharing ofrendas that remember the individual as they were in life. Although this festive occasion is meant to welcome our loved ones, there are many lives that were forgotten both in life and death. These lives were victimized and prosecuted during life as a result of structural racism and exclusion. This year, we hope to raise awareness for the lives that were silenced and empower future practitioners to advocate for these communities and prevent future injustices.


We plan on meeting at 1000 McIntyre St Community Center at 5pm. We will ride the campus bus to Central Campus for the event. 


Please Email Natalia (nataligc@umich.edu) if you have any questions!

University of Michigan Hospital-- 1500 East Medical Center Drive; A. Alfred Taubman Center Front Desk in the lobby
Resident Advisors Anna and Patricia

Have you or your kids ever watched the maize and blue helicopter fly over Northwood while playing outside?  If you've ever wondered what it's doing or where it's going, we've got a tour for you!  You're invited to tour the Survival Flight helicopter at the university hospital. https://www.med.umich.edu/survival_flight/

The tour will begin at 9:30am from the front desk lobby of the Taubman Center at the hospital. The official address is 1500 East Medical Center Drive, but that's not very helpful since the hospital complex is so big. If you need specific directions, email Patricia at psgriffi@umich.edu.  If you'd like to ride on the bus together, we'll leave from the 1000 McIntyre Community Center bus stop at ~9:00am.

*Please note that the working crew provides the tour so if they are called out on an emergency during our scheduled tour time, we may need to postpone, cancel or end the tour early.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY CAUSE. 

Come join us for a night filled of fun detective work! A Murder mystery game is a large party game where one of the partygoers is secretly playing a murderer, and the other attendees must determine who among them is the criminal. You are assigned your character in advance and will receive an email that will include a description of your character and clothes to wear. This may involve the 'murders' of guest(s) throughout the game, or may open with a 'death' and have the rest of the time devoted to investigation. The theme of the murder mystery will be St. Patrick's Day, so come join us for a night of good food and friends!


*This event is not suitable for children and is only open to graduate students and other adult household members.

NW4 & NW5 fence lines
RA Patricia

Take a walk outdoors and enjoy reading a story! 

On the south side of NW4 we feature a book by Sophia Gholz entitled The Boy Who Grew A Forest.  The story starts at the fence behind the 1000 McIntyre Community Center. Go to the bottom of the sledding hill (to the left of the Community Center's front entry) and find the book tied to the fence.  Follow the story along the fence behind the building, walking and reading as you go.  (Warning: it can be a bit muddy if it recently rained.)

On the north side of NW4 we feature a book by Denise Brennan-Nelson entitled Mae the Mayfly. The story starts at the fenced gate to the North Campus Children's Center and proceeds along the fence northward toward Plymouth Road. 


On the south side of NW5 we feature a book by Karlin Gray entitled An Extraordinary Ordinary Moth. The story starts on the fence near house #2324 and continues toward the Resident Advisor's home-- #2314.  Follow the story along the fence, walking and reading as you go. 

On the north side of NW5 we feature a book by Judy Young entitled Digger and Daisy Plant a Garden. The story is on the Hubbard Road fence alongside the garden plots. 

Enjoy!

"The film presents a measured yet impactful look at the way animals are treated, raised and ultimately brought to consumers--from one end of the humane spectrum to the other. Both a personal and a universal story, "At the Fork" opens a meaningful conversation on the business of farming animals for consumption." - Rotten Tomatoes
