Ann Arbor has a very active community and the strong athletics program at the University of Michigan makes for lots of opportunities for residents to get involved in and out of the hospital. Through our wellness funding and attending support, our residency has been able to take advantage of Ann Arbor's active running community with road races and post-run tailgates throughout the spring and fall. Pictured here we have one of our residency-hosted football tailgates with four of our former D1 athletes and ladypods "warming up" for the UM/Ohio State game, and some photos from the Big House 5K and the Dexter to Ann Arbor Half Marathon.
