2018 Principal Project

Students learning at the Simpson Academy for Young Women

The Woman's Board of Rush University Medical Center has committed their 2018 Principal Project to support the Rush Education and Career Hub (REACH), an innovative education and workforce development program. 

In the next decade the need for health care professionals will grow substantially, but especially in low-income communities, low numbers of students qualify to gain advanced skills and access to those careers.  Through mentorship, job shadowing and internship programming, REACH positions high school and college students in Chicago's diverse West Side communities for job success in the health care industry. 

We greatly appreciate your commitment to helping make a difference in our community!
