Communicate for Health Justice Consulting (CFHJ) - Chicago, IL

Contract

Communicate For Health Justice Consulting (CFHJ) is unlike any other health communications platform. Created in December 2018 by Chelsea Dade, a Chicago-based health communications professional, CFHJ hopes to help other organizations easily and effectively merge equity principles within their healthcare frameworks.

About the company:
Established with Health Equity In Mind
After visiting one health communication platform after another, I grew weary of the repetition of viewpoints that traditional healthcare communications content presented. Cost, quality, and safety should be the core fundamentals of healthcare, but there are other important factors, like racial inequities, economic instability, stigma, lack of trust, and bias, that impact these healthcare tenets. These factors are consistently missing from the larger healthcare discussion. I created CFHJ in December 2018 with the hope of helping any organization that deals with healthcare, communicate with health equity in mind, as it's the just thing to do. We are also powered by young, future leaders for health justice in healthcare.

Our Goal
The goal of CFHJ is to help organizations elevate their traditional healthcare communications practices with health equity concepts in order to better relay their messages to their stakeholders in non-profits, for profits, governmental organizations, etc, which ultimately helps make healthcare policies, programs, and procedures more informed, inclusive, and relevant. We also develop content, programs, and opportunities to share health communication with the general public.

Our audience primarily includes seasoned healthcare professionals and medical students, who are hoping to get informed about health equity matters in healthcare. Unlike traditional public health, health equity often falls by the wayside in healthcare, and CFHJ is shining a light on this gap.

Our work is supported by young, emerging health professionals, all with unique missions to make healthcare better for future generations.
