MICHIGAN MEDICINE HEADLINES
It was inside-the-box thinking that led a multidisciplinary U-M team to reimagine a shipping container as an ophthalmology clinic in Jamaica.
Expected to open this month inside a 20-by-8-foot customized shipping container, the new facility is the product of an unlikely collaboration between faculty members at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center, the architecture school, as well as the University Health Service.
The shipping container turned ophthalmology clinic is featured in the University of Michigan Bicentennial video: Always Leading. Forever Valiant at 0:43 – 0:46.
