What They’re Watching: Ngozi Ezike, MD, Sinai Chicago


Eli Kirshbaum


Ngozi Ezike, MD, the president and CEO of Sinai Chicago, told us she’s focused on the future of the state’s 1115 waiver and its implications for the most underserved Illinoisans.

She also discussed the role of community health workers and how Sinai is working to expand their role in the state’s healthcare system.

“Community health workers are incredible members of the health team that go into homes, that educate people, they’re trusted members who themselves are from the community and therefore can have that trust with the community and also deliver and impart very helpful and healthful information.”
