About Dr. John C. Kulis
John Kulis (Kuskulis) was born in Andritsaina, Greece and immigrated with his family to the U.S. around 1928. Dr. Kulis proudly served in the United States Army during World War II and received multiple accolades. After receiving his honorable discharge in 1946, Dr. Kulis moved to Chicago and entered Loyola University to pursue his medical education. Focusing his practice on internal medicine and hematology, Dr. Kulis enjoyed a long and successful career, serving on the staff of numerous Chicago-area hospitals and as a clinical instructor.
Throughout his life, Dr. Kulis was a fervent supporter of Orthodox Christian values and was a proud member of the Greek Orthodox community.
In 2013, in an effort to ensure that his support would continue after his death, Dr. Kulis established the Kulis Foundation to provide financial support to programs and initiatives that would assist these communities. The Kulis Foundation continues in his memory with the hopes of providing financial and technical assistance to individuals and organizations that shared Dr. Kulis’ commitment to supporting humanitarian efforts in the Greek community and surrounding areas as well as programs promoting Orthodox Christian values.
