The American Medical Association (AMA) is a key partner to West Side United (WSU), an anchor collaborative on Chicago’s west side whose members include Healthcare Anchor Network (HAN) members Rush University Medical Center, Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, and Ascension. AMA has provided $5 million to WSU’s multi-pronged social impact investing approach.

The AMA also has contributed to the small business grant pool, career pathway initiatives and strengthened staff capacity. Additionally, as an anchor mission partner, the AMA has provided resources and subject-matter expertise further to measure West Side United’s efforts on health equity.
