Michael Reese incubates,
strengthens and advocates for health solutions to ensure all Chicagoans can live healthy lives

Incubation

We take risks on new and experimental ideas to improve the health of all Chicagoans. We partner with Chicago’s visionary leaders in the start-up phase of launching their innovative solutions. As their partner, we share in the risk of launching a new initiative so they can focus on the work they do best.

Grantmaking

We accelerate and strengthen proven solutions to improve the health of all Chicagoans. We partner with nonprofits across Chicago addressing health challenges. Whether scaling up a promising new model or sustaining a long-term, proven program, we are committed to our partner’s success.

Advocacy

We push for lasting change by influencing policy makers to improve the health of all Chicagoans. We partner with grassroots organizations and coalitions to protect and expand healthcare access and to address the underlying causes of health inequality. We know systems change is the only way to fully address Chicago’s health challenges.
