Principal Project

In 2019, The Woman's Board is raising funds to go towards the $500,000 commitment to support the Rush Community Service Initiative Program, known as RCSIP.  RCSIP was established in 1991 to create a network of community service programs that matched Rush Medical College students' interests in social and healthcare needs of Chicago.  RCSIP projects are student-driven, changing and evolving over time as new community partners are identified. 

With the guidance of Rush faculty who volunteer alongside Rush students, RCSIP's mission is to provide healthcare to underserved Chicago communities, educate the community about healthy living and disease prevention and management, and train and educate young people about career opportunities in health sciences.
