Leadership and staff from the U-M Center for Disability Health and Wellness recently became aware of an April 13, 2023 Michigan Daily opinion piece titled "President Ono, is there a place for people with disabilities at UMich?". 

Dr. Michelle Meade, Co-Director of the Center for Disability Health and Wellness provided the following in response to the article:

“We applaud [the authors’] statement and enthusiastically support their recommendations. Moreover, we would also advocate for a transparent accommodation process and centralized accommodations for individuals with disabilities. We also encourage the Executive Committee of the Medical School to provide such support and transparent processes for Michigan Medicine staff and faculty.”
