This presentation satisfies the Illinois yearly Implicit Bias training requirement.

Since 1991, The Founders, Dr. Cecilia & Robert Brantley of BodyParts Fitness Initiative, (https://www.alignable.com/chicago-il/bodyparts-senior-fitness-bsf) have aimed to inspire the mature market to become physically active! By regularly engaging in safe and enjoyable exercise programs, older people can slow or even reverse many of the declines typically associated with aging. BSF's mission is to offer services to as many active agers as possible at a minimal fee or no charge

The Urban Health Initiative (UHI) is the University of Chicago Medicine’s (https://www.facebook.com/UCMUrbanHealthInitiative) community health department, which administers population health and community benefit programs. This is accomplished through collaboration with community programs and partners, innovative strategies, and the utilization of resources. UHI fosters strong, lasting relationships with civic leaders, community organizations, health care providers and residents to strategically improve health and access to quality care on the South Side of Chicago.
