Dear Community Members,
Welcome 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)
