UChicago is committed to promoting health equity and improving access to care on the South Side, so all residents have the opportunity to thrive.
Working to fulfill its mission of medical education, research and patient care, UChicago Medicine collaborates with the community to provide world-class patient care and reduce health disparities throughout the South Side.
In partnership with neighborhood groups and faith-based organizations, we are fighting chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure, while helping patients manage their complex health needs and make healthy nutrition and fitness part of their daily lives.
The Urban Health Initiative guides a broad range of health partnerships designed to offer community health education, manage volunteer services, and forge alliances with hospitals and clinics throughout the South Side.
Our public health researchers collaborate with local, regional, and national organizations to prevent disease and promote the health of entire communities through evidence-based policies and innovative programs.
