Several CMS administrators and students attended the 2015 Chicago Champions of Health Awards, where Dean James Record served as an honorary co-chair. The ceremony, held at the Union League Club of Chicago, is an annual event that brings together physicians, healthcare leaders, medical school deans, and minority medical students from the Chicago area to honor leading professionals in the fields of medicine and health care. The event is hosted by National Medical Fellowships, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the number of minority physicians and other healthcare professionals.

Students, alumni, and physicians participating in the Doctors of Color (DOCS) Mentorship Program met in Chicago to launch the second year of the program. The DOCS program, a joint effort by CMS and the Cook County Physician’s Association, matches medical students with physician mentors and is designed to promote and support underrepresented minority medical students as they pursue careers in medicine. At this event, students from CMS and other medical schools in the Chicago area had a chance to meet and network with the physicians who volunteered to serve as mentors.
