Help cheer the first 10 years of Northwestern University's Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) and give your input on what the next 10 should look like.

ARCC works to catalyze and support meaningful community and academic engagement across the research spectrum to improve health and health equity.

We invite all Chicagoland community (community, faith, patient, public) & academic stakeholders (Northwestern faculty, staff, trainees/students) to join.

Share your ideas & voice, learn about funding opportunities, and enjoy networking, artistic presenations, and tasty food & drink!

RSVP to ARCC@northwestern.edu 

Join a diverse group of ARCC collaborators including members of the ARCC Community-Academic Steering Committee, ARCC seed grant recipients, Northwestern leadership, such as the Feinberg School of Medicine’s Dean Neilson, and new partners. The event is an exciting opportunity to showcase, reflect on, and discuss the impact and breadth of community engagement in research at Northwestern and in Chicagoland.
