The University of Chicago Medicine (UCM) and the Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM) are committed to improving the health of residents on the South Side of Chicago. As part of this commitment, UCM and ITM are sponsoring a joint grant initiative designed for the community benefit program that extends financial support to local nonprofits to provide health-related services and programming to at-risk and underserved populations aligned with our strategic health priorities.
This new round of funding will provide up to $50,000 to projects that focus on Adult Breast and Colorectal Cancer. Applicants will partner with a UCM Research Collaborator to help execute the project, evaluate its impact and disseminate its results. ITM and UCM are happy to provide those introductions.
