The Henry and Stark County Health Departments is pleased to announce it

has been awarded a special grant to encourage health and wellness in our

area.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is awarding $3.5 million

in "We Choose Health" grants to communities in 60 counties in Illinois,

including $56,480 awarded to the Henry and Stark County Health Departments.

These funds will be used to integrate the Coordinated School Health Model at

Cambridge Community Unit School District and Stark County Community Unit

School District. In addition, funds will also be used to encourage smoke

free multi-unit housing.

"We Choose Health" is a multi-year IDPH initiative to encourage and

support obesity and tobacco prevention in Illinois Communities. IDPH

received a Community Transformation Grant (CTG) from the Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention (CDC) to work with communities to implement proactive

health programs.

"It is important that we all work together, area organizations, schools,

local health departments, municipalities and others, to improve the health

of people in our communities," Illinois Department of Public Health Director

Dr. LaMar Habrouck said. "I want to congratulate the Henry and Stark County

Health Departments on receiving one of the 21 "We Choose Health" grants and

encourage everyone in the community to get involved in the exciting new

programs coming your way."
