Support better health equity in our neighboring communities

Join the Rush Associates Board for its 12th Annual Casino Night on Friday, May 10, 2019. Your support will benefit Rush’s community programs to improve health equity and remove barriers to quality care in the community, while also enabling critical research and other social service needs.

Chicago’s West Side has been Rush’s home since 1873. We share our community with a diverse population and culturally rich neighborhoods, but for too long, these neighborhoods have been overlooked and under-resourced. Stark health disparities and low life expectancy on the West Side are primarily linked not to violence or poor choices, but to decades of structural racism and economic deprivation, including poverty and unemployment, crowded housing, and lower rates of education and health insurance.

Limited sponsorship opportunities are still available.
