Join us this Juneteenth, Monday, June 19, for a virtual conversation with Dr. Ngozi Ezike, the first Black woman president and CEO of Sinai Chicago hospital system and immediate past director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, where she helped the entire state navigate COVID-19.

The pandemic illuminated stark disparities in health care for marginalized communities, challenges that are still present today for safety net hospitals like Sinai. Dr. Ezike will reflect on her experiences and offer paths towards greater health equity for all of our Chicago neighborhoods.
