WHAT WE DO
CHICAGO Children's Health Project
The Chicago Children’s Health Project (CCHP) provides services to children living in medically underserved neighborhoods on Chicago’s South and West Sides.
The program works to bring student health into compliance with basic requirements. Services include school and sports physicals, immunizations, and more.
Patients in CCHP’s service area largely identify as African-American, and the majority are on Medicaid or are uninsured. The children and families the program serves have histories of chronic asthma, diabetes, obesity, elevated blood pressure, and teen pregnancy.
Despite living near a hospital system, community residents have limited access to medical care due to a lack of transportation and health insurance, and limited knowledge of available resources.
