Donate to Infectious Disease Research, Patient Care and Education
Worldwide, infectious diseases are the root cause of death for over thirty million people each year. Infectious diseases result from microbes entering our bodies. The four leading types of microbes are bacteria, virus, fungi and protozoa. While exposure to some germs strengthens our immune systems, many particular microbes are strong enough to bypass our body’s immune systems. Infectious disease specialists at Northwestern Medicine are committed to treating illness resulting from infections at leading edge outpatient facilities conveniently located throughout the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Your generous donations to the Northwestern Memorial Foundation enable our specialists to advance research and clinical trials aimed at developing new prevention, screening, diagnostic and treatment methods for those suffering from infectious diseases.
In addition to a robust outpatient care program for those infected with HIV/AIDS, Northwestern Medicine provides comprehensive services for patients. Some of these services include:
- Coordination of care with primary physicians and home health care needs
- Education, access to resources and teams of social workers
- Comprehensive medical examinations
Working as a team to provide comprehensive care, physicians, specialized nurses, social workers and pharmacists develop and deliver care to our patients with the highest levels of compassion, dedication and respect. Treating both adults and children, board-certified specialists at Northwestern Medicine are able to deliver care for patients with hepatitis, HIV, Lyme disease, gonorrhea, syphilis, and those in need of transplants.
