IDPH has a new grant-funded program, the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Control Partnership. This publication, Chronic Disease Connections, will be part of the communication strategy between IDPH staff and healthcare system providers throughout the state as we partner to help patients control their diabetes and high blood pressure. This is just one of the major objectives for the funding. The CDC would like to see that more patients are aware that they have pre-diabetes, diabetes or high blood pressure and that health systems are maximizing evidence-based strategies to assist patients with achieving control. Over the coming months you will hear more about the new program and how you can become involved.
