A $6 Million Investment In West Side Business And Health

The American Medical Association and area hospitals are putting $6 million into the West Side to improve the local economy and residents’ health.

A collaborative called West Side United will put the money into businesses, nonprofits and affordable housing in nine Chicago neighborhoods that have historically been overlooked.

Reset checks in with West Side United and a partner organization for more on this effort.
