The Next Generation of Leadership

Let’s talk about health care in Chicago.

CommunityHealth invites you to participate in our All In campaign.

All In is a series of education, thought leadership, and networking events focused on generating solutions to help all Chicago residents access health care. 

All In events are open to anyone who values Quality Health Care for All. Everyone from industry professionals to corporate partners to community leaders to students is welcome to join the conversation. Your voice matters.

The All In series kicked off with a panel of diverse leaders at The Metropolitan on Thursday, May 4th, for The 9th Annual Breakfast Summit, The New Normal.

In discussion about how to continue the advancement of health equity as we live in the new normal, health care professionals asked the question:

How can we ensure access to the right health care, at the right time, in the right place for all Chicagoans?

The panel talked about matters such as expectations for Medicaid redetermination, responses to labor shortages, and political lapses throughout the Public Health Emergency.

However, the main focus of the conversation illuminated the need for community-based organizations to continue the collaboration that carried us and our communities through the pandemic.

CommunityHealth had the honor of hosting our community partners…

We are leading the fight for access.

For the second event of the All In series, CommunityHealth is partnering with Ernst & Young and Health Care Council of Chicago on Wednesday, May 31st, at EY to bring you The Next Generation of Leadership: Impacting the Health & Wellness of Our Local Communities.

Join us in discussion with recipients of Crain’s 40 Under 40 to learn more about their social impact career journeys and what they are doing to advance health equity in Chicago.
