About Us

Health & Medicine works to improve the health of all people in Illinois by promoting health equity.


Health & Medicine Policy Research Group was formed in 1981 by an activist group of clinicians, social scientists, health care executives and policy analysts to advocate for health equity and improved public health. From the beginning, Health & Medicine has been regarded as an “honest broker” capable of bringing together a critical mass of stakeholders to achieve progressive change in a complex, and some would say reactionary, period for health services. Our commitment and our approach have earned us respect from many quarters and we have become a leading voice for health reform in Illinois.
