Associate Board members Ashley Shaul, Stephanie Jarvis and Elizabeth Strain (left to right)
The Associate Board of NorthShore University HealthSystem members enjoy a variety of philanthropic and social events, community service projects, an annual benefit, and other "after-five" events throughout Chicago and the North Shore. Associate Board members join together to support the Infant Special Care Unit at NorthShore University HealthSystem while networking socially and professionally and participating in-service projects and fundraisers.
Since its inception in 2003, The Associate Board has raised more than $500,000 for the Infant Special Care Unit (ISCU) and Department of Pediatrics at NorthShore Evanston Hospital. These funds have provided leading-edge equipment, social support programs for premature infants and their families and research projects. You can be a part of our amazing stories. Supported programs include Mother’s Milk Research, Cerebral Palsy Research, Neonatal Social Work Research and The Associate Board Emergency Family Fund, which provides concrete assistance to families of children in the ISCU who are struggling to actively parent their hospitalized infant due to severe economic difficulties.
