The Chicago Forum for Justice in Health Policy: Investing in Chicago’s Schools

On December 15, 2016, Health & Medicine hosted a discussion on investing in Chicago’s schools, asking: “What investments, beyond education, are needed to create and sustain an equitable City?” View the forum agenda here.

This conversation built on Health & Medicine’s 2014 Education and Health Equity Forum which brought together hundreds of education and health professionals to examine the reciprocal relationship between the two fields. The event also examined public health’s role in advancing equitable, high-quality public education.
