Corewell Health is the new name for Beaumont.

At Corewell Health William Beaumont University Hospital, we are thrilled to announce the availability of grant funding specifically earmarked for research in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) within the field of Emergency Medicine. Recognizing the critical importance of fostering a healthcare landscape that is inclusive and equitable for all, we are committed to supporting innovative research initiatives that address disparities and promote diversity within our specialty.
