In June 2015, members of the Hektoen Institute of Medicine, the Institute of Medicine of Chicago, the Michael Reese Education & Research Foundation, the Portes Foundation and the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago  held a series of meetings with the aim of achieving synergies in conducting their individual programs and developing new ones. These meetings resulted in the formation of the Foxglove Alliance.

Coordinated and supported financially by the Hektoen Institute, the Foxglove Alliance is a Chicago coalition dedicated to promoting health through community programs, research, education and grant management, as well as through discussions, collaboration, joint initiatives and marketing. It has grown to more than ten members and continues to adopt new ones dedicated to furthering public health, assisting patients, encouraging research, and supporting community programs.

We encourage you to visit the Foxglove Alliance website and to follow it on Facebook and Twitter.
