[APRIL 26, 2004]  Mark Hilliard, the administrator, and Erin O'Grady, a health educator with the Logan County Health Department, participated in the 63rd annual meeting of the Illinois Public Health Association, which was April 18-21 at the Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale. The association has a membership of 7,000 individuals across Illinois and is the state's oldest and largest voluntary organization devoted exclusively to matters of public health.

The group's annual meeting attracted administrators and front-line professionals from the fields of health and human services, as well as legislators, policy-makers and advocates who have a special interest in public health. This year's conference theme was "Community Health: Our Foundation: Our Future."

The agenda for the gathering focused on the national obesity epidemic, agro-terrorism, emergency readiness, chronic and infectious disease, social marketing, volunteerism, and other core public health issues.

As a member of the Illinois Public Health Association, the Logan County Health Department takes part in the promotion and protection of public health interests and plays an important role in improving the public health system in Illinois.
