The Steve Whitman Award

Recently, over 200 community and academic partners participated in a city-wide symposium hosted by the Chicago Consortium for Community Engagement (C3) entitled “Building Health Equity through Community Engaged Research throughout Chicago.” In the afternoon, there was a poster session featuring partnerships and research across Chicagoland. In tribute to the late Dr. Steve Whitman, renowned social epidemiologist, humanitarian, and social justice advocate, an award was given to honor his memory and work to the top poster.  We are extremely proud that our team was the first recipient of this award for our ongoing collaboration with the Chicago Public Schools ‘Empowering Students with Asthma in Chicago Schools through Photovoice and Videovoice’!  Follow this link to see our poster, which explains more about this exciting community-engaged project!
