One challenge is income disparity. Wealthier patients access advanced care while others struggle to get by on the minimum. Here’s what we do about it.
Another challenge is adequate scientific understanding of all disease areas. Medical problems affecting primarily under-resourced communities tend to receive less research into effective treatments. Here’s what we do about it.
The availability of highly trained practitioners also presents a challenge to the delivery of quality care to all who need it, regardless of what city or neighborhood they live in, or language they speak. Here’s what we’re doing.
The Foundation perseveres in doing the work of Michael Reese Hospital by taking action on the same fronts for which the hospital became internationally known: development of effective treatments through research; expansion of available high quality practitioners through education; and care of the under served through local free clinics.
