Portes Foundation Partnership

In 1999, IOMC established a partnership with the Portes Foundation, which funds two to three grants each year that target the promotion of health or prevention of disease. To date, more than $1,000,000 has been distributed. As part of this partnership, IOMC and Portes, through the Portes/IOMC Award for Excellence in Prevention of Disease, also honor individuals in the Chicago metropolitan area who have shown excellence in health promotion through contributions in the areas of disease prevention and the remediation of disability and human suffering.
