Equal Hope has grown tremendously since its inception in 2008 and has ensured that more women in Chicago have access to life-saving screenings and follow-up care. Join us as we celebrate and recognize the University of Illinois Cancer Center as our Healthcare Champion for Health Equity, and as we recognize Pfizer as the Corporate Champion for Health Equity.
