Lurie Children's Healthy Communities

The conditions into which children are born and grow up have a major influence on their overall health. For decades, Lurie Children’s clinical and public health experts have worked outside the walls of the hospital to improve the health of children and adolescents. Developed together with community and philanthropic partners, our programs focus on under-resourced areas of Chicago and extend more broadly to children throughout the city and state. We are grateful to our partners in these initiatives, and remain committed to our shared efforts to create healthier futures for children.
