This week, former first lady Michelle Obama offered Chicago healthcare workers words of gratitude and encouragement via an audio message shared by the University of Chicago Medicine. 

Obama was the first Executive Director of Community and External Affairs and then Vice President, Community and External Affairs – leading the team which built the foundation for the current Urban Health Initiative. Obama’s work and initiatives led to a number of initiatives in Chicago which are still active today including the South Side Healthcare Collaborative and mobile healthcare units.

Obama concluded her message with words of hope: “You embody the very best of who we are. And I know that we will get through this crisis because of you.” Listen to her audio message below.
