Open/Close Menu Supporting Research at the University of Chicago Medicine Digestive Diseases Center

On the evening of Thursday, January 26th, The GI Research Foundation’s Associates Board held a Trivia Night Fundraiser at Crossroads Public House on North Clark Street to support the efforts of research in the areas of GI, Hepatology, and Nutrition.

With over 150 attendees packed inside Crossroads — over 20 teams comprised of family, friends, and colleagues trying to correctly answer the most trivia questions — the fundraiser earned close to $6,000.
