TRICAM Strategy Planning Meetings

This summer TRICAM hosted a series of strategy planning meetings to develop local strategies to address mortality from leading causes of death among infants, children, and adolescents. Each meeting focused on a different leading cause of death.


The series of strategy planning meetings drew 250 participants. 

All Lurie Children’s staff and Northwestern-affiliated faculty working at any of the following institutions were invited to participate:

  • Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago
  • Northwestern Medicine
  • Northwestern University
  • Prentice Women’s Hospital
  • Shirley Ryan AbilityLab

Participation was strongly encouraged, for those who:

  • currently conduct research, education or advocacy in one of these areas.
  • frequently care for patients with these injuries or illnesses.
  • want to get involved in addressing mortality in one or more of these areas.
