Way to Go, TEAM CWHC!

It's hard to believe that Team CWHC is only 52 days away from its debut at the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Team CWHC is collaborating to raise $5000 to support CWHC's efforts to provide compassionate, collaborative, and comprehensive health care and education to nearly 6000 Chicagoans annually! 

We are unbelievably proud to be represented by this amazing group of individuals from across Chicago. Click here to read more about their personal stories and journeys to 26.2 miles. Learn how you can support their invaluable efforts today!

CWHC Energy Practice: Qigong!


CWHC is pleased to offer a new opportunity to learn natural self-care practices for stress management and life balance! The Manage Stress-Balance Your Life Naturally program will teach you Qigong energy practices, specifically the 4-Energy Gates. Qigong that you can do daily to increase your life energy, balance your body, and promote calmness. The 4-Energy Gates is a practice where through self-massage, you activate key energy centers in the body.

As key gateways, regular practice can lead to a deeper awareness and appreciation of our interconnectedness to the world around us and to the Universe. This self-care practice can be done in no more than 30 minutes.
Upcoming Qigong classes will be held at CWHC on Wednesdays September 17th and October 1st, from 7-8pm. This is not a series, so feel free to attend just one session. You are also welcome to repeat the class if space allows. Register today!

ACLU: Religious Refusal Stories

The American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois wants to hear your story. Defining religious refusals, or denials, as "when businesses, professionals or employers refuse to provide information, services, health care or benefits because they object on religious grounds," The ACLU of Illinois is collecting personal stories of such refusals in order to eliminate such barriers to health care access. Click here to share your story!
