Five-Year Health Plan in Place

Macomb, IL – McDonough County's new five-year health plan will look for ways to provide greater access to health care. Plan coordinator Marci Roberts says future meetings will determine how that might be done. Roberts also says the previous plan called for a focus on obesity and heart disease and those will continue to be concerns in the new plan. Roberts says the new plan will also look for ways to assist the county's aging population. The department plans to expand some of its educational and health screening activities.
