About this event
Dinner and Awards honoring UChicago Medicine as the Healthcare Champion for Health Equity; Donna Thompson for Lifetime Achievement Champion for Health Equity; and Illinois House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch as the Legislator Champion for Health Equity!
Equal Hope’s mission is to save lives by eliminating health inequities.
We do so by challenging the status quo – striving to understand the context of people’s lives and the barriers they experience, so we can help them achieve their best health and a longer life.
Through research, quality assessment & improvements, advocacy, education and patient navigation, we approach health holistically to achieve sustainable outcomes and true health equity.
UChicago Medicine is committed to advancing health equity and reducing health disparities across the communities we so proudly serve. As part of this mission, we continue to invest our resources in cancer research, prevention and treatment, including plans for Chicago’s first freestanding cancer center. We are thankful for our partnership with Equal Hope, our shared achievements, and all that we will continue to do to address cancer’s disproportionate effect on our South Side communities.Brenda Battle MBA, BSN; Senior Vice President, Community Health Transformation and Chief Equity Officer, University of Chicago Medical Center
