JOLIET – The Will County Health Department has been named a Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association based upon outstanding workplace health. The annual award recognizes exceptional activities that promote health and well-being for employees.
JOLIET – Unnecessary emergency room (ER) visits cost area consumers billions of dollars during 2015, but a new initiative championed by Will County’s Mobilizing Action for Planning and Partnerships Collaborative (MAPP), is designed to reduce healthcare costs.
CRETE - A rabid bat was found dead on June 2 at the Crete Public Library, in Crete, IL. The bat tested positive for rabies on June 3 by the Illinois Department of Public Health laboratory. This bat has become Will County's second confirmed case of wildlife rabies for 2016. The first positive case was on May 5 in Braidwood. So far this year, there have been 15 confirmed cases across the state of Illinois.
Did you know that approximately 7% of Will County eighth grade students and about 23% of Will County twelfth grade students are currently using tobacco products? (Will County Illinois Youth Survey, 2014). According to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, about 11,100 kids under 18 become new daily smokers in Illinois each year. As youth are easily influenced by the people around them, how can we, as a community, work to ensure that youth are surrounded by positive role models? By prohibiting tobacco use at recreational facilities, parks, and playgrounds, we can help establish a tobacco-free community norm and can promote a healthier environment!
