The Health Summit will be an opportunity for neighbors to explore the health services offered by local businesses, hear about the latest health research, and learn about Healthy Chicago Equity Zones (HCEZ).

BAPA is partnering with the University of Chicago the Institute for Population and Precision Health (IPPH) to offer opportunities to take part in health-related studies and ask questions on a variety of important health topics.  

Health Summit visitors will be able to learn more about the HCEZ that are part of Healthy Chicago 2025, the City’s community health improvement plan to develop strategies to close the racial life expectancy gap. They also will engage with several local businesses that offer health services.
