“No one is going to die from sinus disease. It’s just annoying: they can’t smell, they can’t taste, they can’t breathe. Treatment is really about working with patients to improve their quality of life.”
I think it is truly our responsibility to maximize the use of the tools we have been fortunate to receive to make the world a better place and especially to elevate those who did not get the same tools that we did.
Chicago Health Equity Alignment Summit brings Community Members and Researchers Together to Discuss Health Disparities on June 6
On June 6, 2023, West Side United and C3EN partnered to present the Chicago Health Equity Alignment Summit at Malcolm X College

One lesson from Market Box is how insufficient our existing systems of benefits are.

I’m interested in how we can communicate with families both inside and outside the clinic about the issue of cardiometabolic risk in a way that promotes healthy behavior change without centering weight and reinforcing weight stigma.

Mistrust in research in health in some communities is so strong and historical. Researchers want to publish data on communities, but what is a community’s interest in science? Without building a network and a platform in the community, it’s hard to do any research–and discoveries have to go on to benefit the patients in our community.
Chicago Chronic Condition Equity Network (C3EN) invites Chicago area researchers in health equity to participate in the upcoming joint West Side United and C3EN Chicago Health Equity Alignment Summit.
Ensuring equitable access to safe, affordable, healthy food is something I fell in love with during college. It was at the heart of my volunteering and research, and the thing that launched me into the world of public health and the fight for health equity.
