There's no better way to engage the community than by bringing the community together. Our special events, presentations and camps are geared to reinforce our mission...while we have some fun doing it!

The donation you make to RCC health education contributes to enhanced curriculum, innovative delivery models, and opportunities for disadvantaged students all over Chicagoland to make better-informed choices.
