    Cara Poland, MD, M.Ed, FACP, DFASAM was trained in internal medicine at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan and in addiction medicine at Boston Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. She has an interest in educating physicians and physicians-in-training to improve care for patients with substance use disorders and alcohol use disorders. Her clinical focus is working with pregnant and parenting women and their families.

  • The State of Michigan received an $800 million settlement from some of the national opioid litigation. As part of this, the legislature created an Opioid Advisory Commission. The Commission will guide the appropriate appropriation of these dollars through recommendations to the legislature. Dr. Cara Poland was appointed to this Commission by the Senate Majority Leader’s office and elected by her peers on the Commission to be the inaugural Chairperson for the Committee for three years. Congratulations, Dr. Poland, on this recognition.

  • Excerpts from our conversation with Dr. Stacey Missmer, an NIH-funded women’s health specialist at Michigan State University.

    NIHNiH: How common are painful periods in teens?

    Missmer: Moderate to severe pain during one’s period—that is, pain that impacts someone's life—is reported by about 35 to 40% of teen and adult women in the U.S. It isn't in any way rare.

  • Endometriosis is an often painful ailment afflicting an estimated 10 percent of reproductive-age women, about 190 million women worldwide, yet it doesn’t get nearly the attention or research funding it deserves.

    Michigan State University Prof. Stacey Missmer, ScD, hopes that an article she co-authored in the New England Journal of Medicine will help change that.

  • GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Overdose deaths in Kent County are on track to be on par or potentially outpace the numbers of 2019 and 2018.

    Medical professionals say the pandemic has prompted some to turn to drugs and alcohol, with isolation proving to be a main factor in substance use disorders over the past year.

  • Welcome to the Upper Peninsula Campus of the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine!

    W. Donald Weston, M.D., former Dean of the MSU-CHM, believed doctors could be trained in a remote area like the Upper Peninsula, but only with the support and effort of the people of the area. With a shortage of physicians interested in rural primary care, the best way to recruit and retain physicians was to reach those individuals who were from a small-town, rural environment and were interested in medicine. These individuals could train and ultimately practice in a rural area.

    The Upper Peninsula Health Education Corporation (UPHEC) was created in partnership with Michigan State University and is one of seven community campuses located throughout the state. We are a small community campus providing personal, individualized training to, and we are considered the one of the rural primary care program of Michigan State University.
