Health disparities in the burden of multiple chronic conditions in the Chicago region are attributed to a history of racial segregation leaving gaps in economic opportunities and gaps in the healthcare system. The Chicago Chronic Condition Equity Network (C3EN) will address these gaps by strengthening and building collaborations across community-based organizations, practice networks, and academic researchers, by promoting a comprehensive approach to the prevention and management of multiple chronic conditions that accounts for mental health, functional health and social life, and by supporting interventions that actively seek to cross boundaries of disease-specific management, professional training, community and practice.
