Congratulations to first year resident Dr. Lindsay Yang on being accepted into the Urban Health Initiative (UHI) Champions program inaugural class. The UHI Community Champions Program seeks to build meaningful partnerships between University of Chicago GME residents and the surrounding south side community. Resident Champions will participate in a series of lectures focused on the neighborhoods surrounding the medical center and mechanisms for generating engaged community partnership. In addition to the education component, resident Champions have committed to complete a number of service hours in the surrounding neighborhood over the course of their time in the program. Dr. Yang also serves as one of the resident liaisons to the Radiology Diversity and Inclusion Council.
The Diversity Council team is very proud of Lindsay and look forward to seeing what she will accomplish in this new role!
