The #umflint story, told by the people who live it.
Happy #CRNAWeek! "There’s no getting around it - anesthesia school is challenging. Fortunately, at UM-Flint, studying feels less like a chore because every bit of information you learn in class can be applied to better your practice. I look forward to providing top quality anesthesia to my patients as a CRNA because of the excellent education I received from UM-Flint."- Drew Cooper, M.S. Anesthesia #WolverineWednesday

UM-Flint alumna Mona Haydar was featured on Michigan Radio's "Stateside" yesterday talking about her new LP "Barbarican". When asked about the album she said "it’s about resisting standards of beauty that are not affirming of all people, of all body types, of all skin colors, of all shapes and sizes that we come in as people, as humans. Barbarican is a love note to the world, that whoever you are, wherever you are, you should love yourself.”
