The Detroit Local Assistance Committee (LAC) encourages your support for two organizations for the MLA | SLA '23 service project.
Women-Inspired Neighborhood (WIN) Network: Detroit
The Women-Inspired Neighborhood (WIN) Network: Detroit is an effort launched and expanded at Henry Ford Health, under the leadership of Dr. Kimberlydawn Wisdom as Principal Investigator (PI). WIN Network: Detroit is a collaborative effort of health systems, community, and academic partners of the Detroit Regional Infant Mortality Reduction Task Force supported by a plethora of funders.
The Task Force has been chaired by Dr. Wisdom since its inception in 2008 after the CEOs of the four major health systems serving Detroit (Detroit Medical Center, Henry Ford Health, Oakwood Healthcare - now Beaumont, and St. John Providence Health Systemt - now Ascension St. John), alarmed by persistently high infant mortality rates and unacceptable health disparities, committed their organizations to find lasting, collaborative solutions.
