Health Awareness

Your health is important – and we’re here to give you the information you need to take care of yourself and your family. Through our Health Awareness program, you’ll learn to connect with a medical provider, how to access health care, and how to advocate for yourself or your children.

Class Series

Held in Spanish, our four-week class series features sessions on a variety of topics. Learn more by contacting the Functional Health Literacy Coordinator at healthliteracy@waukeganpl.info.

English-language Workshops

We offer a monthly workshop in English. Topics include: hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and chronic diseases.

Community Health Workers

Our Health Awareness program wouldn’t exist without our CHWs! CHWs are trained community volunteers who are passionate about helping people connect to healthcare services and access the care they need. Are you interested in becoming a volunteer? Contact us at healthliteracy@waukeganpl.info.
