MBGH has developed this community health awareness campaign through a partnership with CBS2 Chicago and more recently the Northeast Business Group on Health. The campaign has been supported by a number of grants which has allowed for the development of a series of TV vignettes focused on a variety of health topics such as cancer, COPD and diabetes. The initiative also provides resources from the national campaign, Choosing Wisely TM and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
