History and Mission of the SID Program: The Special Infectious Diseases (SID) program, under the direction of Dr. Ram Yogev and Dr. Ellen Chadwick, at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago (formerly Children's Memorial Hospital) began treating pediatric HIV/AIDS patients in 1984. The mission of SID is "to provide outstanding holistic medical care to HIV impacted children, adolescents, and caregivers we serve; support HIV education and prevention; conduct effective research to improve therapies and quality of life; and provide advocacy for those living with HIV."
History and Mission of Junior Council: Junior Council (JC) was founded in 1987 to support the Pediatric and Adolescent HIV/AIDS (SID) program of Ann and Robert H.
