Webinar — Chicago’s Trauma-Informed Hospital Working Group: Lessons from Collaboration and Organizational Transformation

Jan 27, 2021

On Wednesday, January 27th, the Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative hosted a free webinar, Chicago’s Trauma-Informed Hospital Working Group: Lessons from Collaboration and Organizational Transformation. Since 2017, the Collaborative and the Chicago Department of Public Health have co-hosted 19 Chicagoland hospitals all committed to trauma-informed organization building. This webinar highlighted the formation and successes of the Working Group, with presentations from member institutions, such as Cook County Health and Hospitals Systems and Northwestern Medicine, on how they’ve integrated trauma-informed principles into their work, organizations, and communities; as well as plans for the Working Group’s future in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
