Program Spotlight: Chicago Health Corps


Chicago Health Corps (CHC) is a program of the National Health Corps (NHC) AmeriCorps Program administered by the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago (PHIMC). Steeped in the tradition of national service, CHC’s mission is to foster healthy communities today and tomorrow by developing compassionate health leaders dedicated to providing health and wellness services to those who need it most.


“PHIMC’s supportive leadership has strengthened the Chicago Health Corps, giving organizations like Erie Family Health Center the capacity to reach more community members in need of health services and education. “
