Health Research + Education


AllianceChicago maintains a diverse portfolio of research initiatives using real-world data from across our network of community health centers to provide insights, produce meaningful outcomes and explore important health related questions for underserved populations. We promote capacity building and training to broaden and improve the skills of our network in generating and participating in research that addresses health disparities.


To cultivate community-driven research, AllianceChicago’s infrastructure links diverse urban and rural community sites nationwide through a common health information technology platform.

AllianceChicago research priorities, developed in collaboration with community health center network stakeholders:

Behavioral & Mental Health

Chronic Disease Management

Health Equity

Health Information Technology

Social Determinants of Health
