In collaboration with Covering Kids & Family, the Center for Global Urban Sustainability (CGUS) works on promoting access of underserved students and families to health care services in the State of Indiana.
CGUS also has been actively collaborating with Community HealthNet (CHN) on improving access to quality health care and preventive care among the underserved populations in the Lake County of Indiana. CHN, as a federally qualified health center (FQHC) with five locations, has serviced the health needs of the local residents and the "Cross Border" living populations from the neighboring counties of Illinois. Currently, CGUS has built for CHN a database for their enrollment effort and assist CHN in monitoring their activities via weekly updates of the data.
