23rd Annual Rush Ball
Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014
The Rush medical staff and faculty enjoyed a fabulous evening at the 23rd Annual Rush Ball, which was held at Union Station on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014. Guests dined and danced the night away to benefit Rush Medical College students.
This year medical staff and faculty raised close to $100,000 in student scholarship funds, a large increase from last year’s efforts. Proceeds from the Rush Ball support the Medical Staff Scholarship and Loan Fund, which provides valuable student financial assistance to Rush’s medical students. Since its inception in 1991, the Rush Ball has raised more than $1 million toward this worthy cause.

Guests joined our panel of experts for Rush Rounds events in Chicago and in the western suburbs as they answered these questions and discussed how superbugs have evolved, how antibiotic resistance develops and what we’re doing to keep pace with aggressive strains of bacteria.

Union League Club
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention

While everyone occasionally feels sad, this is not to be confused with diagnosed depression, a common but serious illness that can interfere with daily life and cause pain for sufferers and for those who care about them. Unfortunately many people with a depressive illness never seek treatment.
