Please join us for a:
Trauma Center Town Hall Meeting:
what can be done to get a south side trauma center?
Saturday Oct 5th
12:00pm – 2:00pm
5655 S. University Ave (on corner of 57th street and Univ. Ave)
Invited Guests include:
- Dean Polonsky, Univ. of Chicago Hospital
- U.S. Congressman Bobby L. Rush
- Leaders of Chicago Trauma Centers and S. Side Hospitals
There are no trauma centers on the south side.
For three years youth and community leaders have been protesting and demanding a south side trauma center. This summer Congressman Bobby Rush introduced legislation for an addition $100M a year for trauma care. **FLY also created a video about the campaign this summer which will premier at the townhall** Also this summer the mighty Kenwood Oakland Community Organization officially joined the Trauma Center Campaign. As our coalition and allies continue to grow, Hospital Leaders and Elected Officials are starting to listen. We need to keep up the pressure and make our voices heard!
Join us and bring your questions and ideas directly to hospital leaders from the University of Chicago, South Side Hospitals and Elected Officials.
