Staff and students in LSA, the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School and the Medical School take their commitments to living healthy lifestyles and put them to work for good causes.
Nearly 300 students from Rackham and another 84 from the Medical School participated June 4 in the Dexter-Ann Arbor Run to help raise money for the new C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. The Rackham team brought in approximately $8,800. Students in Rackham were sponsored though a school-wide Health and Wellness Initiative launched by Dean Janet Weiss. Some team members posed after the event. The women (from left) are: Lisa Hsu, Linda Cunningham, Salena Whitfield, Nese Nasif and Shanthi Ramnath.
