PP4H uses groups called Hubs to organize areas of interest
Representing community organizations and residents, members align with one or more PP4H Hub to advance policy, systems and/or environmental changes for a collective impact to improve community health and economic growth.
PP4H, in partnership with Loyola Medicine, hosted a community discussion with U.S. Senator Dick Durbin on August 7 at the Maywood Park District’s Lightford Recreation Center.
Senator Durbin, who is spearheading the Chicago HEAL Initiative with 10 Chicago area hospitals - including Loyola - and their community partners, facilitated a discussion with Maywood residents on HEAL’s community violence prevention goals. Residents’ comments centered on how actions around community violence can be more inclusive to support Maywood’s youth, families at the margins, and justice-involved residents.
