East + West Research Mixer Sept. 1, 2021 – Topic: UIC Innovation Community Health Advocacy (CHA) Program

Dear Colleagues,

We are looking forward to continuing the E+W Faculty Research Mixer series this year! This is a series of events designed to bring UIC faculty together on a monthly basis around particular research topics to meet and talk about their work in a multidisciplinary setting. Once we can safely do so, we will resume these Mixers in person at the Innovation Center. Until then, they will remain on Zoom.

The first E+W Faculty Research Mixer of the semester is taking place on Wednesday, September 1st from 4:30-6:00 p.m. The topic for September is the UIC Innovation Community Health Advocacy (CHA) ProgramCHA is a partnership between UIC and the Jump Simulation & Education Center at OSF Healthcare that brings together faculty researchers and health care professionals to develop innovative solutions to health-related problems in an urban community. Proposals for funding through the CHA program are currently being accepted. UIC faculty and clinicians from OSF Healthcare can jointly apply for up to $75,000 to support collaborative research projects aimed at improving clinical outcomes, increasing access, and improving quality of care for urban communities. The Mixer will feature brief presentations from UIC faculty to highlight this program.

This event will take place virtually. If you would like to attend, please use this registration link.
