2016 Mayor’s Summit on Health Equity in Detroit
May 3 2016 at 8:00 AM
McGregor Memorial Conference Center
  You are invited!  “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” — Martin Luther King Jr. Even with all we have accomplished in health care, too many people lack access to adequate health and medical services — sometimes for no other reason than where they were born or their racial and ethnic backgrounds. During the Mayor’s Summit on Health Equity in Detroit — presented in partnership between Wayne State University and the City of Detroit — participants will collaborate with leaders in the community, the health sector and academia to examine how interconnected systems and racial injustice shape health inequalities in Detroit and suggest road maps to achieving health equity. Keynote speakers: Dr. Dwayne Proctor, senior advisor to the president and director, Health Equity Portfolio, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Dr. Eliseo Perez-Stable (invited), director, National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, National Institutes of Health Participation is limited to 100 attendees.

College of Engineering Student Design and Innovation Day

Danto Engineering Development Center
Students who wish to participate - follow these instructions (College of Engineering students only). The Wayne State University College of Engineering, invites you the second annual Student Design and Innovation Day on Tuesday, May 3. This event showcases the work of talented students, from senior capstone projects to research team endeavors with industry and community relevance. These projects combine technical engineering excellence and creative design, often with an interdisciplinary approach. The College of Engineering ranks in the top 30 percent of all engineering programs in the nation in research expenditures, according to the National Science Foundation. We place a strong emphasis on student — particularly undergraduate — research. Supervised by top-tier faculty members, our student capstone and research teams produce high-quality outcomes. Some of these projects were directed and sponsored by partner companies, resulting in advancements to technologies, processes and methods. We want to open our doors to give industry and the community an opportunity to view the diverse range and capabilities of our student research teams. Many projects from each of our eight departments will be on display here at our college in Midtown Detroit. To view past projects, visit our Design Day website.  View a map of campus and directions and parking information.
