In 2019, The Woman's Board is raising funds to go towards the $500,000 commitment to support the Rush Community Service Initiative Program, known as RCSIP. RCSIP was established in 1991 to create a network of community service programs that matched Rush Medical College students' interests in social and healthcare needs of Chicago. RCSIP projects are student-driven, changing and evolving over time as new community partners are identified.
During the week of August 6th, 2018, La-Z-Boy delivered 14 custom recliners to IMD Guest House, which were placed in rooms dedicated to veterans participating in the Road Home Program at Rush. - Purchase of the chairs was generously funded by the Rush Woman's Board, for the grant year starting July 1, 2018. - The electronically powered chairs recline to a zero-gravity position, which is especially beneficial to veterans like Cheryl, pictured here with her service dog, Ari, who recently underwent spinal surgery.
