Associate Board

Young Professionals Making a Difference


The Associate Board is a diverse group of committed young professionals who work to increase awareness and raise funds for programs and services that improve the health and wellness of the communities served by Cook County Health.

Members engage in volunteering, fundraising, networking and advocacy opportunities. Each year the Associate Board hosts three to four diverse events and activities. The Associate Board is also an opportunity to build leadership skills and lay the foundation for philanthropic involvement going forward.
