Michigan Advance: Ilitch School alumna on Detroit health care
Denise Fair has led the city of Detroit’s Department of Health since last September during one of the most tumultuous times in history. As chief public health officer for Michigan’s largest city, her tenure has been significantly affected by the COVID-19 crisis that has resulted in the Motor City being one of the world’s coronavirus hot spots. Fair, a 37-year-old Ypsilanti native and current downtown Detroit resident, now leads an effort to help her city beat the virus. Fair recently earned a master of business administration in finance from the Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University.
