For over 30 years Michael Reese has been committed to one core principle – that all Chicagoans should have equal access to health solutions.

Today, the work to support that belief is stronger than ever.


By prioritizing some of the most urgent health challenges facing our city, we are addressing the root causes of issues that prevent individuals and communities from reaching and maintaining health.

The tools we use to create change

Our tools are designed to advance our priority areas. Whether used individually or in some combination, our tools go deep within an issue to create real, lasting change.
