Alliance Healthcare Foundation Announces Innovation Initiative Decision

be successful in our competitive environment. The program starts upstream from traditional health care in order to change not only a child’s future but the future of his or her family and their social network as well. AYA supports healthy living and economic attainment through academics and the competitive athletics, specifically the game of squash.

During the past seven years, AYA has partnered with the Preuss School to test the program. Working intensively with 10 students per year from the seventh grade through graduation, approximately one-half from the Hoover High neighborhood, all 20 graduated students are going to four-year colleges on scholarships, including some of the most prestigious in the country. The third group of 10 students is expected to graduate with their class next year. This is critically important because according to the National Center for Education Statistics, college enrollment rates are 25% lower for low and moderate income high school graduates (55%) compared to the highest income backgrounds (80%). “Promoting greater college enrollment might not only address the current earnings gap but also offer the potential to improve economic mobility for future generations” says Bhashkar Magumder, economist, Chicago Census Research Data Center.

AHF will help AYA expand this program to City Heights. Over time, this model will be replicable to other communities and begin to transform the belief that access to health care is enough to maintain healthy lives when, in fact, social barriers play an equally important role in people’s lives.
