Community Health

Promoting the health and well-being of children and adolescents beyond the hospital walls is a critical part of our mission. All community-focused initiatives at Lurie Children’s are led by the Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities. The Magoon Institute builds strong collaborations with community organizations to reach youth where they live, learn and play and help them thrive. One of its top priorities is to address the root causes of health disparities, including racism, poverty, poor access to healthcare, housing insecurity, food insecurity, unemployment, violence, and an unsafe physical environment. The Magoon Institute also facilitates community-engaged outreach and research initiatives to advance and implement evidence-informed child and adolescent health programs and practices.
