Tribune Highlights Masks for Moms Fundraising Push
The Chicago Tribune covered a community engagement project with SPH's UIC Center of Excellence in Maternal and Child Health, aiming to provide pregnant mothers with masks during the pandemic. After an initial influx of homemade masks donated, Masks for Moms is now collecting donations to purchase masks to continue to meet the needs of women in Chicago.
