JOLIET – Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., prompting the Will County Health Department to remind area residents that powerful resources are available to help those wishing to kick the habit. The Illinois Tobacco Quitline is a free, telephone-based cessation counseling service provided to Illinois tobacco users who want to quit smoking for good. Callers to the Quitline (1-866-QUIT-YES) can talk confidentially and free of charge to registered nurses and respiratory therapists, who are certified tobacco treatment counselors.
JOLIET – Dr. Sangita Garg talks oral health in recognition of Children’s Dental Health Month. There are several reasons why children and adults can lose their teeth. Most commonly, it is a combination of poor oral hygiene, dietary habits and missing routine dental appointments.
