Remembering Susan D. Peters

 For over a decade, Peters helped bridge University of Chicago Medical Center and its service area of 32 communities on Chicago’s South Side to help improve residents’ health and well-being. She also launched the weekly Community Health Focus Hour on WVON Radio 1690. She increased staff participation in community events, such as Real Men Cook, Black women’s Expo and more. She also established a diabetes education program, launched bilingual community health education and built UChicago Medicine’s fitness program into a model of civic partnership on the South Side. Her rich experience in event planning and networking helped the center’s Office of Community Affairs establish an unprecedented presence in Hyde Park. Learn More
