Join us for a free kidney and diabetes screening
C4 will be hosting the Kidney Foundation of Illinois at our Broadway location (5710 N Broadway) on March 16, 2023, to provide kidney and diabetes screenings for the community. We will also be hosting a resource fair open to all community members with our friends at Tapestry 360 Health and Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.
This is one of many community events C4 will be hosting on the north side as part of our participation in the Healthy Chicago Equity Zone initiative through the Chicago Department of Public Health, in partnership with Swedish Hospital. As the co-lead for the Uptown neighborhood with Apna Ghar, C4 will help address the social and environmental factors that contribute to health and racial inequity, with the ultimate goal of closing Chicago’s racial life expectancy gap.
Studies show that individuals with mental health needs are four times more likely to develop diabetes than those without, and we’re excited to be able to provide this service to our own clients and to the greater community.
