Many ways to enjoy life

Quality of Life

To promote wellness and add to your longevity in the field, we encourage fellows to take part in activities that give you energy and rejuvenation. Michigan and the Flint area provide plenty of opportunities:

  • Detroit is just an hour away, with professional sports teams, casinos, world-class museums, restaurants and theater.
  • The Flint and Genesee County area itself also has a lively cultural center, vibrant downtown, lots of festivals and nationally recognized farmers’ markets.
  • Many of Michigan’s natural wonders are just a short drive away, whether it’s a walk, swim or ski trip at a state, county or local park in Southeast Michigan, antiquing in a nearby small town, or a day trip to one of Michigan’s Great Lakes.
