23rd Annual Rush Ball 
Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014
Union Station

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. 

For more information about the event, contact Kelly Parker Kloak at kelly_parker@rush.edu or (312) 942-0699.

Rush Rounds West Suburban Event
Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013

Superbugs
They resist antibiotics. They spread easily and rapidly. They thrive in even the most sterile conditions. Superbugs like MRSA are increasingly prevalent, invading our homes, hospitals and schools. Does overuse of antibiotics play a role? Or our food supply? What can we do to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria?  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.

For more information about Rush Rounds, please contact Kelly Parker Kloak at kelly_parker@rush.edu or (312) 942-0699.

Depression: Its Diagnosis and Treatment
Union League Club
4:30-6:30 p.m. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, an estimated one in 10 U.S. adults suffers from some form of depression. 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.
 
The Union League Club of Chicago Public Affairs Subcommittee on Health & Life Sciences, in partnership with Rush University Medical Center, presented a complimentary afternoon forum on Wednesday, July 17, featuring presentations by two leading practitioners in the field: Mark Pollack, MD, and John Zajecka, MD. In addition, the forum included a patient who successfully battled depression and who shared his personal story of combating this affliction.
