We Educate

The Founders’ Board plays host to an impressive educational series for their members and Hospital supporters alike, which highlights the important need for support of groundbreaking research. On almost a monthly basis, the Founders’ Board welcomes researchers, physicians, and nurses from the Medical Center whose presentations help educate our members on topics that will most certainly define future medical treatment and care of all pediatric patients at both Lurie Children’s and nationwide.

We would like to thank you for staying connected to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago this summer through our Founders' Board Webinar Series. This series featured Lurie Children's leaders, physicians and researchers speaking about the latest issues affecting children and families. These educational offerings included a Q&A session with the featured speakers to provide the opportunity for attendees to connect directly with these voices of pediatric expertise in our region.

As dedicated advocates of the hospital's mission, members of the Founders' Board pride themselves on educating their communities to highlight the important need for continued support. So many aspects of our daily lives have changed, but the Founders' Board's steadfast commitment to its pillars does not waver:

We Advocate. We Educate. We Fundraise. We Serve.
