I'm trying to find the Human Rights Clinic, but when I call Elmhurst Hospital, no one there seems to have heard of it. Anyone know how I might be able to get in touch with Dr. Bias or Dr. Beattie? I run a theater company that creates theater by, for and about underserved communities, and their community certainly fits that bill. You can find out that I'm a legit person by visiting: or Thank you!
