Closing the Death Gap on Chicago’s West Side

Location: Salon A-1 (Lower Level)

Lack of access to education, employment, and community investment are at the root of a death gap in Chicago, with life expectancy for West Side residents up to 16 years less than those living in the Loop just seven train stops away. Join this interactive workshop led by West Side United, a collaborative of hospitals, community organizations, and residents, to learn how they’re working to improve health and economic vitality in the city’s 10 West Side neighborhoods. You’ll have the chance to experience the Root Learning Map © exercise and discuss how to catalyze cross-sector change in your community.

Presented by Rush University Medical Center
