The North Campus Research Complex (the former Pfizer campus) may seem quiet now, but planners across the University are working to create a strategy for using the 30-building property. Visit the North Campus Research Complex Web site to watch a video detailing their ongoing efforts. The Web site also offers facts and figures about the complex, a chance to share your ideas and links to sign up for regular updates.
The Healthwise® Knowledgebase, which powers Health Topics A – Z for visitors to the Health System Web site, is a rich source of health information.

Read the full list of the latest updates.
To identify healthier food choices in dining and vending locations across the University, look for the MHealthy logo. The GOOD CHOICE logo will no longer be used. Items with the MHealthy logo meet specific recommendations for total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, added sugar and fiber. Read about the MHealthy nutrition program.
Aramark’s Classic Fare Catering now offers a MHealthy/GOOD CHOICE menu. Items on the menu are designed to help lower total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium and added sugar intake while increasing the amount of dietary fiber. Get a copy of the new menu.
Medical Center Information Technology has launched Phase 2 of the GreenIT program. In this second of a four phase program, MCIT-managed computers are now turned off every night, except for specified areas where exceptions have been authorized. These areas include units that function 24 hours a day, seven days a week, such as the OR, pathology labs, radiology, University Hospital and Mott inpatient care units and ambulatory care examination rooms.
The new UMHS GreenIT policy explains how to request an exception to the automatic computer shutdown policy.
