The City of Chicago attempts to enlist everyone as public health allies, and nurtures many partnerships with hospitals, clinics, individual physicians, government agencies, elected officials and other community-based health providers and advocates.
Your support of public health is important. There are many things you can do to make Chicago healthier. Be a public health advocate by volunteering your time and talents or joining an advisory board. Discuss public health issues at your church, workplace or block club meeting. Contact your elected officials, from your ward office all the way to Washington, and enlist their support.
