The Future Is Bright -Moving Toward Equity and Excellence

Private revenue is critical to building the highly skilled, committed, and diverse health care team that Cook County Health’s patients deserve. Yet, the education and training required to move forward in various health care roles is a barrier for many from communities of color. In 2022, the Foundation and Cook County Health, with the support of County government, created the Provident Scholarship Fund to specifically support students of color seeking careers in diverse health care roles. The Fund will provide scholarships to medical and dental school students, as well as those seeking careers in nursing, respiratory therapy, radiography technology, dental hygiene and others. The Fund is supporting 30 scholarships in its inaugural year. Our goal, and the focus of the 2022 Gala, is to triple that number for the 2023 academic year.

  Our 2022 Health Equity Investments

For 187 years, Cook County Health has led the way in building equity every day through its care, advocacy, and patient engagement for people of all socio-economic backgrounds. Today, the health system provides more than 55% of the charity care in Cook County, and over 45% of its patients are uninsured. Patients want their health care providers to look like them, come from their culture, speak their language and understand their lives and communities.

The Foundation’s goal, in partnership with Cook County Health, is to make good health possible for all Cook County residents. In celebration of its 10th Anniversary, the Foundation is recognizing the entire health system and its longtime commitment to equitable, high quality care for all.

Your sponsorship will support expansion of the Provident Scholarship Fund to support nearly 100 scholarships for both students in medical or dental school and those seeking careers in key allied health roles, such are nurses, respiratory therapists, radiology technicians, dental hygienists and dental assistants.
