National Health Corps Chicago
 
 
 
National Health Corps Chicago is a program of the National Health Corps (NHC) and is administered by the Health Federation of Philadelphia (HFP), and implemented by the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago (PHIMC). The mission of NHC is to foster healthy communities by connecting those who need it most with health and wellness education, benefits and services, while developing tomorrow's compassionate health leaders. NHC Chicago members commit to providing 1700 hours of direct service in a community setting over 46 weeks. NHC Chicago members will serve at a local community organization (aka host sites) to improve health in Chicago’s underserved communities. Each host site creates a unique position description for each member that outline his or her specific project and duties. Throughout their service term, members plan and participate in group service projects and national service days in collaboration with other volunteer organizations. Additionally, NHC is committed to fostering members’ personal and professional development, and commitment to service through trainings and team building.

Member Duties : Each NHC Chicago member is placed at a host site where they fulfill most of their service hours. Host sites include federally-qualified health centers, community-based organizations, school-based health centers, and nonprofit organizations. Members help build healthier communities by providing two main services at their host sites: 1) health education, including education about oral health, healthy relationships, HIV and STD prevention, asthma care and management, nutrition, and chronic diseases and 2) health access, including helping patients enroll in benefit programs, scheduling patients for primary care visits, providing HIV testing, and vision screening and testing. NHC members do not engage in any activities prohibited by AmeriCorps as outlined 45 CFR §2520.65. There are only 2 positions remaining for the 2018-19 program year.
