KENNEDY FORUM ILLINOIS PROGRAMS
THE KENNEDY FORUM ILLINOIS 2ND ANNUAL FORUM AND GALA
The Kennedy Forum Illinois Annual Forum and Gala serves as tool to inspire, elevate and expand our vision of what is possible in mental health and addiction. We convene leaders from across business, government, academia and civil society for strategic dialogues which help map transformation and create a new future where all persons are treated with dignity, inclusion, and receive the person-centered mental and physical care and support they need to thrive and achieve their goals.
