Sinai Urban Health Institute recently unveiled new findings from the largest community-driven, face-to-face health survey ever conducted in Chicago. The findings showed there continue to be significant, sometimes devastating disparities in the health and wellness of different racial and ethnic groups in Chicago, exacerbated in certain communities.
The Blue Grass Community Foundation was the first of 10 community foundations across the U.S. to replicate the On the Table initiative this year with funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and support from the team at JT.
JT is working closely with the Indiana Immunization Coalition to drive a major awareness campaign across the state of Indiana to educate college students and their parents about the new meningitis B vaccination, and to make it easy to obtain the important protection needed.
In fall 2015, JT developed strategy for and executed a story-based social media strategy for a metastatic breast cancer campaign – focusing on the notion of time for these patients living with an incurable disease. The It’s About Time campaign included more than 25 local and national advocacy groups.
In partnership with The Chicago Community Trust, JT has been honored to receive two prestigious local awards for our work on On the Table 2014.
PRWeek - a leading publication for the public relations industry - has named On the Table 2014 as one of five finalists for its prestigious, national "Nonprofit Campaign of the Year" award.
Jasculca Terman and The Chicago Community Trust placed second, earning honorable mention in PRWeek’s national “Nonprofit Campaign of the Year” award for the On the Table 2014 initiative.
