Local Community Engagement

The Center for Community and Global Health (CCGH) works with a variety of organizations in the Maywood and Proviso communities and beyond. Many of these organizations host Community and Global Health (CGH) Honors students for their required Field Experience and provide opportunities for their required Scholarly Projects. 

While the CCGH's partners regularly host CGH Honors students, they welcome all Loyola students who are interested in serving the community to participate in service opportunities of varying duration. 

The following list of partners is representative but not all inclusive. Any students interested in community service are encouraged to review missions, programs, and services at the organizations' websites for more information. Students seeking additional guidance in being connected with opportunities for community service may contact the CCGH at ccgh@luc.edu

Other Opportunities

The CCGH also supports students who wish to serve organizations operating at the national level and/or based in other parts of the United States. Examples of organizations where the CCGH has supported students include Project C.U.R.E., YogaCare, and Gilda's Club. Students who have previously served with a national organization that they intend to continue to serve during their medical education may share opportunities for involvement with the CCGH for broader distribution within the Health Sciences Division.
