Organization description:
Hektoen was founded in 1943 by physicians at Chicago’s Cook County Hospital to promote medical learning, education, ethics, and research in order to extend the boundaries of knowledge and improve the care of the sick. Today, Hektoen continues to support investigators practicing basic science, translational and medical research, but has also evolved and expanded to meet the changing needs of its community, supporting HIV care and prevention, mental health, substance abuse and other programs for Chicago’s underserved populations.
