31 year old Yolanda Muhammad is living a healthier lifestyle thanks to a blood pressure awareness and education program funded with an Ingalls Impact Grant through the Ingalls Development Foundation.
“I am more conscious about what I eat and understand better how exercise and good nutrition can reduce my stress level and risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke, says Muhammad.”
Heart disease is one of several community health needs the Ingalls Development Foundation is helping our community address through the Ingalls Community Impact Grant program. Launched as an immediate philanthropic benefit of the extraordinary partnership between Ingalls and UChicago Medcine, the Ingalls Community Impact Grant program supports hospital and community based programs that address chronic community health needs, such as a heart disease, access to prenatal care, cancer awareness, and chronic disease.
Donors who want to positively impact the community health needs of our core community may contact the foundation to make a direct gift into our community impact fund that supports the grant programs. Earnings generated off endowment assets are also used to invest up to $100,000 per year to drive philanthropic impact in supporting our mission to improve the health of the communities we serve.
