Over the course of 2017 CommunityHealth has published a series of All In™ articles on our LinkedIn page. These articles, while different in topic, all contribute to the holistic aim of our All In™ campaign, which is to generate discussions and solutions for providing accessible health care to all Chicago residents. The articles can be read in full on LinkedIn, or downloaded in PDF format here.
So far, the seven articles have engaged with numerous aspects of health care, with input from those holding varying roles within the medical ecosystem. See below for a brief outline on each article;

- Healthy Chicago 2.0, Partnering to Improve Health Equity- Julie Morita, M.D, Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner, spoke to CommunityHealth about the challenges of providing access to health care for all Chicagoans, and how the CDPH is working to overcome them with the Healthy Chicago 2.0 initiative.
