Clartian Associates' executive director, Angela Hurlock recently interviewed with Amanda Abrams, a health fellow and freelance journalist living in Durham, NC. Hurlock shared outcomes from their neighborhood's Health Outcomes Demostration Project funded by both public and private funders. The results revealed that residents faced health issues, a community once known as a leading provider of steel globally. The results also solicited critical feedback because of the closing of the South Chicago YMCA in 2017, a healthy lifestyle staple of more than 90 years.

Distinguished Fellows from the University of Chicago's Booth School joined in a walking tour on the Southside led by Claretian Associates' Executive Director, Angela Hurlock. Professor Harry Davis accompanied the students on the tour. The Fellowship is set up as a creative and student-led practicum researching various aspects of leadership. Each year fellows participate in a learning trip aimed at exploring a particular area of interest by having short, informal conversations with key leaders. This year the program concentrated on Southside communities where economic development was mainstreamed.
