A Few of My Passions

Howard Brown Health

Howard Brown Health is one of Chicago's largest charity healthcare organizations. With an annual budget of over $40 million, the agency serves more than 36,000 adults and youth each year. Its diverse health and social service delivery system focuses around the following programmatic divisions: primary medical care, behavioral health, research, HIV/STI prevention, case management, social services, youth services, older adult services, and community initiatives.

Howard Brown's multi-site operation includes a main health and research center in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, Triad Health Practice at Illinois Masonic Hospital, the Broadway Youth Center, and three Brown Elephant Resale Shops. 

My partner and I are avid supporters of Howard Brown. I am proud to be a member of the Board of Directors for Howard Brown Health.
