Educator's/CHD Welcome Reception
Thursday, July 26th, 6:00pm-8:30 pm
Location: Cliff Dwellers, Chicago


In partnership with The Center for Health Design, the reception will incorporate the Educator's Reception and CHD's "Health Design Insights" program. One CEU will be offered with a topical presentation along with refreshments. "It's about having a vision."

The Cliff Dwellers, dating from 1907 - is a private club for members who are either professionally engaged in literature, painting, music, architecture, sculpture, or one of the allied arts, or who support the fine arts and the performing arts. 

The Cliff Dwellers Club is most noted for its "View." The view eastward elegantly framed in large expanses of glass overlooking Grant Park to the lakefront is considered the best in the entire City of Chicago, and will form the backdrop for the Educator's/CHD Welcome Reception. Registration for this event is now at capacity. However, you can join the wait list if you click here.

Seating is limited to the first 25 SLS attendees to register. Registration for this event is now closed.
