Community Events

 

We engage in community events in an effort to disseminate the work of the survey. If you are interested in scheduling a presentation of the new Sinai Survey 2.0 results at your organization, please email survey@sinai.org

 

Media Event

The much anticipated findings from Sinai Urban Health Institute’s (SUHI) Community Health Survey 2.0 (Sinai Survey 2.0) were released on Thursday, March 23rd at an unprecedented Dissemination Launch held at New Zion Church, near Mount Sinai Hospital.  Drawing a crowd that included funders, researchers, health professionals, SUHI collaborators, and community leaders and representatives, the event was a powerful kickoff to the dissemination of results from the Sinai Survey 2.0.  In conjunction with the event, the Survey’s results were featured across local, state, and national news outlets, including U.S. News and World Report, WGN’s Voice of Chicago, WBEZ’s the Morning Shift, CBS Radio, ABC7 Chicago, Chicago Tonight, Crain’s Chicago Business, Chicago Sun-Times, and Chicagoist


At the Dissemination Launch, SUHI researchers presented the Sinai Survey’s alarming findings on the persistent health inequities faced by nine Chicago communities. The event included remarks from Dr. Sharon Homan, President of SUHI, and Terry Mazany, President and CEO of The Chicago Community Trust, as well as a comprehensive summary of Survey findings by Jana Hirschtick, SUHI Epidemiologist and Survey Director. It concluded with a panel moderated by Karen Teitelbaum, President/Chief Executive Officer of Sinai Health Systems, with representatives from SUHI, The Chicago Community Trust, and the Sinai Survey 2.0 Community Advisory Committee.  Over 150 people attended, including various Chicago news outlets.

Community Forums

In order to meaningfully engage community residents, we held a series of seven community forums in the spring of 2017 to share and discuss Sinai Survey 2.0 findings with residents and health advocates in the surveyed communities. Community-specific topics for each forum were prioritized by the Community Advisory Committee
