Resulting Interventions and Grants
Results from the initial Sinai Community Health Survey in 2002 led to the generation of nearly $20 million in funding and over 30 health programs to improve the health and wellbeing of communities throughout Chicago. The Sinai Urban Health Institute implemented interventions in conjunction with community partners to address the following health topics and conditions:
The Sinai Survey has also been replicated in three Chicago communities:
The Jewish Community on the north side of Chicago
The Chinese Community in Chinatown
The Vietnamese and Cambodian Community on the north side of Chicago
In October, 2010, SUHI published a book with Oxford University Press that summarizes all of these experiences in the hopes that they would be used as a model for other urban communities.
