Many of our current readers may know the story of how Mobile Care came to be. After learning of the tragic reports of asthma-related deaths in Chicago, four Chicagoland physicians — Dr. Philip Sheridan, Sr., Dr. Philip Sheridan, Jr., Dr. Paul Detjen, and Dr. Eric H. Gluck — were inspired to form Mobile C.A.R.E. Foundation (now Mobile Care Chicago) in 1998.
In 2000, Mobile Care’s first mobile clinic, originally named The Breathmobile, was launched.
Over the next few weeks, we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary by sharing stories from those who have gotten us to where we are today. We hope you learn more about us, and share our story with a friend. We will also be opening up donations to help us achieve our future goals in helping kids in Chicago access the health services they need, as well as helping our community fight the pandemic. To those of you following our blog, look out for new content, and a link to our 20th Anniversary Website, which will go live next week.
Our goal in this celebration is to not only raise money, but to also spread awareness. We encourage you to share the content we post throughout the next few weeks with a friend or family member who might not know about Mobile Care Chicago, or those who might not know how hard it is for many kids in Chicago to access life-changing health services.
