Join Chicago PSR and Physicians for a National Health Plan-Illinois at our second annual FREE Soul of Medicine dinner.

This year we will honor Dr. Helen Binns and Dr. Claudia Fegan for their work to protect children’s health and to provide health care for all.

Helen Binns, MD, MPH is a national leader in children’s environmental health issues.  As director of the Nutritional Evaluation and Lead Evaluation Clinics at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Dr. Binns conducts important research on nutrition, tobacco and lead poisoning prevention in children.  She currently is chairperson of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Environmental Health and the AAP liaison to the CDC Advisory Committee on Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention. She is a member of the Executive Board of the Illinois Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics.

Dr. Claudia Fegan is chief medical officer for the John H. Stoger Jr. Hospital of Cook County. She was previously associate chief medical officer for the Cook County Ambulatory and Community Health Network and interim chief medical officer of the Cook County Bureau of Health Services. A past president of Physicians for a National Health Program, Dr. Fegan has appeared on a number of national television and radio programs on behalf of PNHP, and she has lectured extensively to both medical and community audiences on health care reform in the U.S. and Canada. She is a co-author of "Universal Healthcare: What the United States Can Learn from Canada" (1999) and a contributor to "10 Excellent Reasons for National Health Care" (2008).

We are inviting all Chicago-area medical students to join us at the Soul of Medicine dinner for food and conversations with members of both of our organizations.
