Destination: Chicago

Destination Chicago is a pre-orientation program designed to give students first hand exposure to different neighborhoods, populations, and determinants of health throughout the Chicago area. Each day will include engaging speakers, a chance to see a new Chicago area through the eyes of the people who live there, and a service project. Youʼll also get to meet fellow classmates and hear about service opportunities from M2 student leaders.
