HC3 Members and Partners:
As we continue to navigate these challenging times, I am consistently amazed by the tremendous leadership and forward thinking of HC3’s members and partners. I am grateful for your efforts to disrupt the norms and find solutions to problems that have plagued our system and society since long before the pandemic.
Recently, HC3 has hosted some virtual conversations that I encourage you to check out if you missed it.
On August 12, partners from UI Health, UIC School of Public Health, and Metopio discussed the implications of using current COVID-19 data and how the intersection of race and ethnicity, specifically the inequities in access and quality of care for vulnerable communities, can be measured to inform interventions and impact.
On August 19, HC3 resumed its 2020 Emerging Leaders programming with a moving conversation with Jahmal Cole, the Founder and CEO of My Black My Hood My City. Jahmal addressed the disparities that Chicago’s youth in the south and west side communities face. Special thanks to Oak Street Health for sponsoring the series.
We are all in this together. I am TRULY in awe of Chicago’s resiliency and look forward this time next year when we can look back on what we accomplished amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
As always, if you have questions, ideas or just want to say hello, please feel free to reach out (Meghan@HC3.Health).
