LAKERS TOGETHER: Find out how we're moving forward.
Health Forum of West Michigan
The Health Forum of West Michigan is hosted by the Office of the Vice Provost for Health and Midwest Interprofessional Practice, Education and Research Center at Grand Valley State University and is scheduled on the first Friday of each month during the academic year. The forums are coordinated under the collaborative leadership of our community partners with sponsorship provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. The Health Forum engages health care practitioners, health care and business administrators, educators, students, and community members in critical health-related conversations that are pertinent to our communities. Our panels of experts are not only health care providers and administrators, but also government, business, and community leaders who bring diverse perspectives to the discussions.
All Health Forum of West Michigan events are free and open to the public. Our topics are subject to change so please check our website for most current information!
