"She is novelty, for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time." Mark Twain
HCCI is lucky enough to call Chicago home, and Mark Twain perfectly describes not only our amazing city on the lake but also our progress at HCCI as well. We've made significant progress since our May Newsletter! We're finalizing our curriculum and updating our technical infrastructure, and we think you'll be excited by the results.
Visit us online at hccinstitute.org to see what's new, and check back often, to see what happens next!
Yours in health,
