While the COVID-19 virus takes center stage, we are focusing the 2020 Gala on infectious disease and the role that Cook County Health has played since its inception in fighting deadly epidemics. This disease, unlike anything we faced in generations, has thrown into stark relief the need for high quality health care for everyone, especially the most vulnerable in our society.
Our Honorees this year are:
Dr. Ngozi Ezike
Director, Illinois Department of Health
In recognition of her leadership throughout the pandemic.
The Staff of Cook County Health
In recognition of their commitment and compassionate response to the pandemic.
Your support for the work of Cook County Health is essential during this critical time. Please consider sponsoring our Gala campaign to sustain the work of the Foundation and Cook County Health. For more information please call Debbie Hinde, Executive Director of the Foundation, at 312-925-2455.
