Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers today announced it will host its 2018 Health Equity Summit, “ZNA vs DNA: Zip Code and Children’s Health. Busting Myths, Reimagining Solutions,” on April 26 from 8:00am-2:00pm at the Italian Community Center, 631 E. Chicago St. The event is $25 with registration available here.
The Summit is bringing together the biggest names in healthcare, key business and city leaders, and top area funders to spark a community conversation about how poverty impacts health care utilization and to rethink how to break down silos so social services, health care and business organizations can collaborate more effectively to improve the lives and health of children in our community. It’s more than talk; it’s a connection of powerful people doing good work towards a tangible execution of action steps.
