Every day in Michigan hospitals, lives are touched … a woman learns from her doctor that she’s now cancer free … a nurse helps bring a baby into the world … a researcher makes a new discovery … and the list goes on. Behind every individual there is a personal story about why healthcare matters to them. The MHA wants to share those stories.

#MiCareMatters is a social media hashtag campaign designed to promote the exceptional, often lifesaving care that is both given and received throughout Michigan. Through photos, videos and testimonials, #MiCareMatters gives Michiganders a platform to tell those stories in an impactful way. 

Join the Conversation!

STEP 1: TELL YOUR STORY

The MHA invites you to join the conversation by telling your story. The hashtag can be used from a variety of perspectives, including:

  • The care provider/hospital staff perspective. Why are you passionate about healthcare? How does the work you do make in difference in the lives of patients/your community?
  • The patient perspective. Why does healthcare matter to you? Share a specific story about how access to quality care changed, or even saved, your life.
  • The Michigan “MI” perspective. Why is access to quality healthcare important to our state? How has the Healthy Michigan Plan made a difference?
STEP 2: SHARE YOUR STORY ON SOCIAL MEDIA

  • Record a video, snap a picture, write your story, etc., and share on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram along with the hashtag #MiCareMatters directly in the post.
