UIC Experts

Father’s Day: Black men who return to their communities from prison find it difficult to make connections. For men who are fathers, their inability to make connections can have economic and social implications for themselves and their families. Joseph Strickland, senior researcher at the Center for Social Policy and Research, UIC Jane Addams College of Social Work, can discuss the parenting role of black male ex-prisoners. Contact Jeffron Boynés, (312) 413-8702; jboynes@uic.edu

New CPR Law: Illinois high school students will be required to learn CPR under a bill Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law last week. Dr. Terry Vanden Hoek, head of emergency medicine at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System, is project leader of Illinois Heart Rescue, one of several organizations that will help provide educational materials and volunteer trainers to teach CPR in high schools under the new bill. Vanden Hoek can speak on teaching CPR and how the new law is a good step towards increasing Illinois’ 4 percent chance of surviving an out-of-hospital heart attack.
