Art for Health
Please join the Office of Global Health in celebrating the work of hundreds of Rush volunteers over the past 10 years on 10/10!
The Office of Global Health, in partnership with Community Empowerment and local leaders, is pleased to invite you to this year’s Art for Health virtual fundraising event.
Live music and videos will take you back to our partner communities in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where you will learn about the great work that these communities have accomplished in sustainable primary care and global surgery. While COVID 19 has decimated much of the world, low income countries have born the additional burden of severe socioeconomic fallout and even less access to core health services. We need your help now more than ever to continue to provide a platform so that this effort can continue!
