Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthier Communities

Going beyond hospital walls to advance health equity for youth and their families

For most youth, their zip code impacts their health more than their genetic code. This is especially true in Chicago, where families living in low-income areas have limited access to physical and behavioral health services. As the hub for all community health programs at Lurie Children’s, the Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities builds on the hospital’s long-standing commitment to serve every child, both within and beyond hospital walls.

Your gift to the Magoon Institute will support our work to improve access to care and advance health equity. Donations are instrumental to our efforts to prevent violence, build resilience and improve mental health, promote access to healthy foods, train a diverse workforce, provide pre- and post-natal support to pregnant adolescents, bring clinical care to our communities and much more.

All gifts are tax-deductible. If you have questions about making a gift, please contact Laurie Shannon at the Foundation: 312.227.7274 or lshannon@luriechildrens.org
