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

Flushing old medications down the drain or toilet can be harmful to the environment and keeping those meds in a home can be dangerous to children or pets. The best way to get rid if them is to drop them off at a facility that can take them. This Saturday is National Take Back Day where select law enforcement offices will take these unused medications and properly dispose of them. Please click the link below to find sites near you.

Additionally, Fox Metro Water Reclamation District takes unused medications during normal office hours, Monday through Friday, every week.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our partners at the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office. Several key officers lead out on a 4 hour life saving drill last evening at the Health Department. This drill was entitled a “Citizens Response to a Violent Intruder.” These officers safely conducted an active shooter drill which taught the participants that when faced with danger, you must DO something. This thoughtfully planned event allowed the staff and community to exercise what they may do in the event of a real emergency. Also, a special thank you for the continued support from the Bristol Kendall Fire Department. Kendall County is fortunate to have such skilled professionals in our community.

Public health is the invisible shield - protecting people against disease outbreaks from food, water, poor hygiene; informing and supporting healthy choices around weight management and smoke-free living; and protecting the most vulnerable through vaccinations.
