WOODSTOCK IL – McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) is conducting low-cost wellness screenings open to all McHenry County residents. On September 25th a screening will be offered at the Johnsburg Public Library, located at 3000 Johnsburg Road, from 9 a.m.—11 a.m.  Screening appointments are also available on the first Wednesday of each month at MCDH in Woodstock.  Appointments are offered at $25 for a cholesterol and blood glucose test. An optional $10 A1C test may be added when given in conjunction with these tests.

In October, a free six-week workshop for adults who have been diagnosed with diabetes or who care for someone with diabetes will be offered by the health department. The weekly “Take Charge of Your Diabetes” self-management program was developed by Stanford University and focuses on improving physical activity, self-care, nutrition, and individual action steps. Classes are held Thursdays beginning October 3rd through November 7th from 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the MCDH offices in Crystal Lake, 100 N Virginia Street. Each session will help participants set weekly goals, brainstorm ways to reach those goals, and provide diabetes management resources. To register for the workshop please visit www.mcdh.info  or call Carol at 815-334-4580.
