Why We Need Your Support

CHI has historically been supported through a myriad of funding sources listed above. However, as we seek to increase our research and education, we need additional funds to further support our programs and initiatives (see below), continue to attract the best human talent and grow our team, and further increase our impact and reach of making the world a healthier place.

How We Will Use Your Support

  1. We will use your funds and donations to directly support our research and education, including:
    Training patient advocates and industry professionals on how to establish and optimize communication between patients, medical innovators, payers, and policymakers in order to deliver a more informed, value-driven approach to healthcare.
