About Us

The Washtenaw Health Initiative (WHI) is a voluntary collaboration between more than 200 individual and organizational stakeholders dedicated to improving the health of low-income, uninsured, and under-insured populations across Washtenaw County, Michigan.

Steering Committee

The Washtenaw Health Initiative Steering Committee provides strategic oversight and sets program priorities. The committee is comprised of 22 members, both organizational members and community members.

Organizational members

Organizational members represent specific organizations that are essential to the mission of the Washtenaw Health Initiative. Each organization designates its own Steering Committee representative who serves until the organization selects a new representative.

Community members

Community members represent various sectors–education, business, philanthropy, etc.–that are vitally important to the mission of the Washtenaw Health Initiative. These members serve rotating, three-year terms, renewable up to three times. The Steering Committee consults with the Washtenaw Health Initiative Stakeholders Group to ensure that community members are selected through a collaborative process.

Meeting agendas

Washtenaw Health Initiative Steering Committee meetings are held monthly at the Center for Health and Research Transformation in Ann Arbor, MI. Meeting agendas and minutes are regularly posted and available online.
