Flint community partners and three major Michigan university campuses announced a new partnership to help address, through coordinated research efforts, the current and future status of residents and their health.

The new initiative, the Healthy Flint Research Coordinating Center, brings together Flint’s Community Based Organization Partners (a coalition of community-based organizations, CBOP), UM-Flint, U-M Ann Arbor and Michigan State University. Working with the CBOP will ensure community needs stay at the forefront in current and future research efforts in the Flint community.

“We believe this joint effort between the universities, community members and local health advocates will become a national model for coordination because it will allow stakeholders to share information, resources and brainpower,” says Chancellor Susan E. Borrego of UM-Flint.
