Davenport University is announcing plans to create a new campus in downtown Lansing. The private non-profit school will renovate a nine-story building on Grand Avenue.
Davenport University will remodel the 55,000 square foot Grand View Center building in Lansing to accommodate up to two thousand students. The new space will house a number of medical and IT programs and will include hi-tech classrooms and labs.
President Richard Pappas says the location is ideal for its plans to be part of a downtown educational corridor.
Mid-Michigan health officials say they’ve issued the most comprehensive study of its kind in this region. The survey takes an extensive look at many social and environmental causes of health outcomes.
The study tracks a number of physical health indicators, including obesity, smoking and stress. The report also probes socioeconomic and environmental factors, and not surprisingly, it finds a direct correlation between poverty and poor health.
