The UIC Center for Healthy Work is a research and education center established in 2016 to advance the health and well being of workers in Chicago, the state of Illinois, and the nation. Our center is one of ten Centers of Excellence for Total Worker Health®, funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

The Center’s mission is to remove barriers that impact the health of low wage workers in the increasingly contingent workforce. The Center for Healthy Work aims to turn unhealthy work into healthy work through our novel research projects.
