April 4th Forum Urges Collaboration Between Health Systems and Providers

On April 4th, 2012, Health & Medicine and the Cook County Health & Hospitals System, with support from The Chicago Community Trust, hosted a forum, "Moving Toward a Regional Approach to Health: The Role of the Cook County Health & Hospitals System (CCHHS)." Dr. Ram Raju, CEO of CCHHS, called on public health and healthcare providers to work collaboratively to put patients first and meet the needs of all residents in the region.  A panel of health leaders discussed current opportunities and challenges for the health system and a productive dialogue was created between audience members and the speakers.
