Robb & Pete’s Ride for Refugees May 2019

Help Peter and Robb help us to support healthcare for refugees on Chicago’s North Side

Last year Heartland Health Centers served more than 26,000 patients. One in three were best served in a language other than English.

Chicago’s North Side is a haven for individuals and families all over the world. Many come to one of Heartland Health Centers’ 17 locations for comprehensive health care.

As a Federally Qualified Health Center, FQHC, part of the public health service, Heartland Health Centers serves as a medical home for its patients.  We offer primary care at every stage of a patient’s life, from birth to geriatrics.  We are guided in our belief that healthcare is a human right and by our mission to deliver healthcare from the heart.

Dental care, social work, psychiatric services, nursing care and language interpretation services underpin our “healthcare from the heart”  — but many of these vital wraparound services are not reimbursable by Medicaid and Medicare or only partially covered by public sources.

We are extremely grateful to Peter and Robb for dedicating their bike ride to us.

In 2018, Peter Glaser (our former CFO) and Robb Geiger went on a month long bike tour on the East Coast.  This April they are doing their second marathon ride — more than 1,200 miles, through Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Illinois. If you haven’t already, check their Tumblr blog for updates on their trip:
