Celebrating National Community Health Center week- August 14th-18th, 2017

Transforming Health Care in Our Local Communities

Each August we recognize the outstanding contributions of and services delivered by America's Health Centers.  Our theme this year is "Celebrating America's Health Centers:  Transforming Health Care in Our Local Communities" - and that is exactly what we do here at the Will County Community Health Center.  Community Health Centers, also known as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC's) are non-profit, community-directed health care providers located in medically underserved rural and urban communities where health care resources are scarce.  Health centers provide access to care regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. 

Join us in celebrating this week packed full of daily activities.  Just click on the attached pdf for details of FUN, FUN, & FUN!

Healthy Teeth from Birth By: Dr. Sangita Garg D.D.S.

On a late afternoon at the Will County Community Health Center Dental Clinic, I reviewed the chart for my last patient of the day. I remembered seeing this 2 year old girl one week earlier and had scheduled her to receive a filling today. As I approached the dental operating room, I greeted this beautiful little patient warmly and she shook my hand with a smile, her mom looking more apprehensive than her.

Will County Health Department Encourages Cervical Cancer Screening

Schedule Your Pap Test

Women can prevent cervical cancer! Regular screening with Pap tests can detect cell changes before cancer develops.  Cervical cancer was once the leading cause of death for women in the U.S. However, deaths have decreased largely due to the use of regular pap tests and pelvic exams.  Regular testing is crucial in identifying cervical cancer or pre-cancerous conditions.
