As a multi-disciplinary non-profit organization, the IOMC provides Chicago’s health leaders with opportunities to convene and collaborate on the health issues that are facing Chicagoans and Illinoisans. Every two years, IOMC conducts a State of Health of Chicago, outlining key areas in which improvement is necessary for the well-being of all Chicagoans. In addition to the social determinants of health, IOMC’s key areas of focus include addressing the impact of the uninsured on healthcare providers and healthcare workers, advocating for the rights of patients with disabilities, preventing gun violence and addressing mental health, opioid abuse and addiction in Chicago.
As a Regular Fellow, Dr. Crossman will join an interdisciplinary group of professionals with diverse experiences, education, and achievements, all with a desire to work toward positive change in healthcare and public health.
