The Will County Health Department is the proud recipient of two new awards.
Gold level American Heart Association's Fit-Friendly Worksite award.
Silver recipient of the Illinois Healthy Worksite designation from 2015 to 2018.
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!

Call 815-740-8143 for and appointment and information. Daytime, early morning and late afternoon appointments are available. Please schedule your appointment at least 4 weeks before your date of departure for maximum protection from vaccine-preventable diseases.
Pools, waterparks, hot tubs/spas, splash pads, and water playgrounds are great places to have fun, be active, or just relax. Having fun while you swim this summer means knowing how to stay healthy and safe while enjoying the water!
Swimming is one of the most popular sports activities in the United States.1 And just 2.5 hours of water-based (or other forms of) physical activity per week has health benefits, we each need to do our part to minimize the risk of illness and injury.
