My Guide to HI

Our mascot, the CHIbra, borrows from the rare disease zebra mascot. As explains, “Historically, medical professionals were told that when they ‘hear hoofbeats,’ they should not expect to see a zebra. In other words, look for the more common answer, a horse. Now, we know that one in ten Americans is actually a zebra!” Click the image to download a PDF of the CHI mascot, the CHIbra!
