Initiatives

Policy Calls

Policy calls take place on the third Wednesday of every month from 1:30-2:30 pm and are focused on reviewing legislative action taken by different stakeholders in the past month, as well as developing future strategies for advancing the mission of the coalition. If you are interested in joining these calls, please contact us via email at selina@miairmihealth.org.

Health Professional Education Program

MI Air MI Health partners with various Michigan colleges and universities to offer a health professional education program to teach tomorrow’s health professionals about policy and advocacy. Our Coalition invites professors, instructors, and other leaders across the state to participate in this unique environmental health educational opportunity. We host this half-day program in Lansing in legislative offices. It includes a basic orientation to policy and advocacy work, a panel of current health professionals that have combined their clinical work with advocacy work, and a faciltiated mock legislative testimony exercise.

This program is flexible and can be adapted to specific areas of expertise, including medicine, nursing, social work, and public health. This content is adaptable for both classroom sessions and student organizations. Our current partners include the University of Michigan School of Nursing and Michigan State University College of Nursing.

For more information about this program, please contact Kindra Weid, RN, MPH, at kindra@miairmihealth.org.
