Health & Medicine Policy Research Group (HMPRG)
November 7, 2011


Health & Medicine Policy Research Group (HMPRG), has reached a milestone: our 30th Anniversary – which we could not have done without the the network of funders, policy makers and advocates, community providers, donors, organizations and partners who share our mission and vision.

We’re celebrating on Saturday, November 12, 2011, with a Gala in the Sidney R. Yates Gallery at the Chicago Cultural Center. 

In addition to our featured speaker,
author/commentator Barbara Ehrenreich, we will also be honoring three people who have helped to shape and grow our organization: our Co-Founder, John McKnight- a pioneer in the development of asset-based models for community-building; health preventionpioneer, Yolanda “Bobby” Hall, one of the organization’s founding board members; and Margie Schaps, a respected health policy and advocacy leader and our Executive Director for over 18 years.
