The Adlai Stevenson Center on Democracy and Skyline Village Chicago Friday Forum Present: Community Health Equity: A Chicago Reader

Community Health Equity: A Chicago Reader Speaker: Dr, Raj Shah with introduction by Nancy Stevenson.

Edited by Fernando De Maio, Raj Shah, John Mazzeo, and David Ansell. In collaboration with The Adlai Stevenson Center on Democracy.

No city offers more inspiring examples for action to overcome social injustice in health than Chicago. More than any other American city, Chicago has been a center for the study of both urban history and economic inequity. Community Health Equity assembles a century of research to show the range of effects that Chicago's structural socioeconomic inequalities have had on patients and medical facilities alike. The work collected here makes clear that when a city is sharply divided by power, wealth, and race, the citizens who most need high-quality health care and social services have the greatest difficulty accessing them.
