Health & Medicine Board Member Nominated to Cook County Health and Hospitals Board

Health & Medicine is pleased to share that Board Member Dr. Virginia Bishop has been nominated to the board of the Cook County Health and Hospitals System (CCHHS).

In 2007, Health & Medicine helped to create the independent board of CCHHS and continues to serves on the nominating committee, advising Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle on the new appointments.

“We are thrilled that President Preckwinkle has nominated these five individuals for this important role at CCHHS and commend her on these strong choices. These nominees—including Dr. Bishop—have precisely the skills needed to help strengthen our health care safety net and steer it through the complex and challenging period ahead,” Health & Medicine’s Executive Director Margie Schaps said.

In addition to serving on Health & Medicine’s Board of Directors, Dr. Bishop is a public health professional with specialties in adolescent and community health and is a professor at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Bishop and the other nominees must now be confirmed by the Cook County Board.
