Odehmenan Health Equity Center

Odeh Center's mural and event collage

In fall 2023, the University of Illinois Chicago will officially launch the Odehmenan Health Equity Center (Odeh Center). This is the result of a joint partnership spanning years between the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Engagement, and a generous donation of space from the UIC Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago.

The purpose of the Odeh Center is to help cultivate community for students, staff, faculty, alumni and neighborhood partners. This is done through education, affinity groups, events, dialogues and advocacy. By fostering this sense of belonging and partnership, our community will be better equipped to uphold health equity in our clinical practice, education and research.

The Odehmenan Health Equity Center is located on the second floor of the UIC Library of the Health Sciences:

UIC Library of the Health Sciences
MC 763
1750 W. Polk Street
Suite 220
Chicago, IL 60612
