Dear Community Members,

AD_AmaalWelcome to the Kendall County Health Department information pages.  We have organized our programs, our services, and well being information that is relevant to quality of life matters for our community members.  Several community partners have also contributed to the development of a 2021  MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships) priorities and related vision statement:

  • Increase community population opportunities for access to oral health  care
  • Decrease community population potential exposure to Lyme Disease
  • Connect seniors to assets that reduce socio-economic duress and support mental health

Complete health includes social well being, mental health, environmental health, and physical health.  To this end; we aspire to educate, motivate, inspire, and empower citizens of Kendall County to make healthy choices.

(Kendall County Community MAPP Partners, 11/15)

I would like to invite you to speak with me about your input,  insights, or questions with regard to this important work. I would also be honored to speak with you about your input,  insights, and reflections with regard to any of the information on our web site.  Feel free to contact me at (630) 553-8097.

Peace, Amaal
