CHRT begins new projects on legislative education, autism diagnosis, and mobility accessibility

June 23, 2024

The Center for Health & Research Transformation (CHRT) is pleased to announce three new projects:

Health education for Michigan legislators and legislative staff

Due to the substantial turnover and subsequent loss of subject matter expertise in health issues in both the state House and Senate each election cycle, there is a need to support of both legislators and their staff. CHRT will provide one-pagers on policy-relevant health topics and their impact on the people of Michigan and will participate in legislative education fora to share and discuss with state leaders.

Early diagnosis of autism in Michigan

Earlier diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) will allow patients to access services and resources sooner. CHRT will work with the Autism Alliance of Michigan on a plan to reduce disparities in diagnosis timing and enable earlier diagnosis in Michigan. 

Mobility accessibility in Washtenaw County

CHRT will work with Feonix Mobility Rising to create a Transportation Assistance Hub and Transportation Task Force in Washtenaw County, MI. This project aims to remove barriers to transportation access for community members.
