Chicago's South Side is a storied collection of vibrant, resilient, culturally rich and diverse neighborhoods. Steeped in African-American heritage, the community offers a host of unique amenities and experiences, from White Sox baseball to the DuSable Museum of African American History. The South Side also serves as a historic and contemporary hub for visual, performing and literary arts.
However, against this engaging backdrop also lies one of the nation's largest underserved communities. South Side residents are disproportionately afflicted by chronic diseases and other complicated public health concerns.
The University of Chicago Medicine is dedicated to enhancing health and wellness in South Side communities. We also understand that addressing the health needs of the community is essential to improving its residents' quality of life. Recognizing that there are contributing factors at the roots of these complex issues — such as low income, limited education, violent crime and unemployment — we aim for solutions that extend beyond the point of medical care.
Some community areas stretch across multiple ZIP codes. Our community benefit service area extends only to those parts of a community area within the 12 ZIP codes identified.
