 I am pleased to announce we have awarded funding to Endeleo Institute of Chicago. It was my privilege to work with Melvin Thompson on this application for a project that will provide funding for health information hub inside The Carter G. Woodson Regional Library branch of the Chicago Public Library.

According to a City of Chicago Department of Public health assessment, Chicago neighborhood ranked the lowest in life expectancy due to economic hardships, infant mortality, infectious disease, as well as the high unemployment rate and high crime rates. This information hub will provide access to health information for the community, including NLM and NIH resources.

Mr. Thompson and the Endeleo Institute will partner with The Chicago Public Library, and retired librarian and dementia advocate Mary Beth Riedner on this project.
