  • Stories of War Brought to Life by Vietnam Veteran on May 19 May 20, 2014 10:56 AM
    Paul Baffico, a Vietnam veteran, will speak about his war experiences at a free event at the Lake Bluff Public Safety Building, 45 East Center Street, Lake Bluff, on Monday, May 19, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. His presentation is part of the series “The Stories of War from those Who Have Been There” coordinated by the Lake-McHenry Veterans and Family Services program affiliated with the Lake County Health Department. Paul Baffico is a Vietnam veteran who served as a communications platoon leader with the 101st Airborne Division in 1970 and 1971. He flew 206 combat assaults and is the recipient of the Air Medal with 7 oak leaf clusters, the Bronze Star with 1 oak leaf cluster, and the Army Commendation Medal. Baffico fought in Vietnam 44 years ago and he still lives with the memories of that experience every day since coming home. Founded in 2010, the Lake McHenry Veterans and Family Services program is designed to honor veterans and promote conversation among veterans, their loved ones and the public about the long-term effects of military experiences. Currently, there are approximately 40,000 veterans in Lake County alone, and of those veterans, 20 to 25 percent struggle with mental health issues. Veterans are often reluctant to seek help on issues ranging from job and benefit issues to emotional stress caused by deployment, reintegration, and family issues. The Lake-McHenry Veterans and Family Services program assists veterans, whether they served in Vietnam or more present day conflicts, and their families, face challenges before, during and after deployments. The program is free and open to the public. Reservations are unnecessary. For more information, call: (847) 377-8386 or visit: http://www.lmvfs.org/. # # #

  • Health Department Hosts Free Hepatitis Health Fair May 8, 2014 3:44 PM
    In observance of National Hepatitis Testing Day, the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center will host a free hepatitis health fair in conjunction with Walgreens, the YWCA Lake County and GlenLake Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The event will take place on Monday, May 19, in the lobby of the County Building, 18 N. County Street in Waukegan, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Program staff will provide information and education about hepatitis B and C prevention, care and treatment. Free blood pressure screenings will be offered. Participants can also receive general information related to overall health and wellbeing. In 2013, 212 cases of all types of hepatitis were reported in Lake County. The Health Department’s Sexually Transmitted Infections program provides counseling and resources, as well as a monthly support group for people infected with hepatitis C. Health officials estimate that one in 12 people worldwide are living with either chronic hepatitis B or hepatitis C, and that one in three people have been exposed to both viruses. These diseases can be spread by: • sharing needles, syringes, or other equipment to inject drugs and needle stick injuries • sharing personal care items that have come in contact with another person’s blood, such as razors or toothbrushes • having sexual contact with an infected person Symptoms of hepatitis C, which include yellowing of the skin or eyes, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever, extreme fatigue and stomach pain, can take up to 20 years to appear; many people live with the infection but are unaware of their status. Chronic hepatitis C is a serious disease that can result in long-term health problems, including liver damage, liver failure, liver cancer, or even death. It is the leading cause of cirrhosis, liver cancer and the most common reason for liver transplantation in the United States. Currently, there are vaccines available for hepatitis A and hepatitis B, but not for hepatitis C. The Health Department’s Sexually Transmitted Infections Program, along with several other programs, is working to reduce the incidence of infectious diseases in alignment with the Health Department’s strategic plan goals. Located at 2400 Belvidere Road in Waukegan, it offers sexually transmitted infections screening, treatment and hepatitis vaccines; other services including counseling, education, free and confidential HIV testing, educational based support/talk groups; and outreach. For additional information or to make an appointment, call: (847) 377-8450 or visit: http://health.lakecountyil.gov/Population/Pages/Sexually-Transmitted-InfectionHIV-Prevention.aspx.
