HC3 November Newsletter | 11.23.2020

HC3 Members and Partners:

As we approach the holiday season, I want to express my gratitude for your commitment to building a healthier Chicago.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Chicago’s health care community has shown tremendous resilience, leadership, and innovation at a time when our city has needed it the most.

I know it can be frustrating to hear reports of infection rates climbing and inequities continuing. But as I reflect on the ways each of you have stepped up over the past 11 months - supporting frontline workers, investing in solutions to improve our system, and eliminating barriers to care – I have hope that we will emerge from the pandemic strong as ever. Thank you for dedication and determination.

I wish you and yours a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and holiday season.

Stay well, Meghan Phillipp

Executive Director
