Healthy HotSpot supports our health & well-being
Eating healthy is good for us. It lowers our risk of illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, as well as defends against depression. Good eating habits can also boost our energy, sharpen our memory and stabilize our mood..
The health benefits of being physically active add up. Active living can improve our overall health and well-being, reduce stress levels, maintain healthy bones and strong muscles, and lower our risk for chronic conditions like heart disease.
We all know that tobacco use is bad. It can cause illnesses like cancer, heart disease, stroke, disability and death. Yet, more than 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 high school students smoke and new products to the marketplace such as e-cigarettes continue to make tobacco visible and available.
As the health department for 125 Chicago suburbs, Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) routinely watches for patterns of disease, plans for distribution of vaccines and antibiotics to community clinics, and provides important information to the media and public.
