HYDE PARK — As University of Chicago Medicine works on developing its new trauma center and emergency room, it’s asking for more help from the community.

The university is looking for 15 community members to serve on a new advisory board and advise the hospital on neighborhood engagement and benefits, access to care and other issues.

Rather than picking familiar faces to serve on the board, the university is putting out an open call to anyone who lives in the area to vie for a spot.

Those hoping to serve have until Aug. 29 to apply online.

Board members will be selected by Oct. 7, with the new group expected to get down to work in November.
