Michigan Libraries for Life!

On Monday, October 16, Michigan Libraries for Life! will be onsite at the Downtown AADL 10:00am to 2:00pm.

Since 2010, libraries across Michigan have participated in this simple and effective campaign to educate patrons about organ, tissue, and eye donation and to encourage them to join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry. This effort was originally spearheaded by the University of Michigan’s Taubman Health Sciences Library but has expanded to include public, academic, special, and hospital libraries across the state. This collaborative effort has inspired nearly 3,500 people to sign up as donors!

More than 95% of Americans support organ, tissue and eye donation. In Michigan, only 59% of adults have joined the state’s donor registry. That discrepancy is largely due to state residents not knowing how to join the donor registry, or having unanswered questions about donation. Michigan Libraries for Life helps to address that informational need.

We are excited to bring this life-saving event back in 2017! If you have questions, please contact us at MichLib4Life@umich.edu to receive more information. You can also find Michigan Libraries for Life on Facebook! www.facebook.com/ML4Life

Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth

The Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth (MiPHY) is an online student health survey offered by the Michigan Departments of Education and Health and Human Services to support local and regional needs assessment. The MiPHY provides student results on health risk behaviors including substance use, violence, physical activity, nutrition, sexual behavior, and emotional health in grades 7, 9, and 11. The survey also measures risk and protective factors most predictive of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and violence. MiPHY results, along with other school-reported data, will help schools make data-driven decisions to improve prevention and health promotion programming.

Results from this data and local trends will be discussed on Sunday, October 8th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at the Dexter United Methodist Church, 7643 West Huron River Drive, Dexter, MI. You may contact the church with any questions at 734.426.8480.
