Your Voice Matters
Disastrous events in your community—like a tornado, long power outage or disease outbreak—can strain healthcare resources. Knowing what to expect and having a plan can help you and your community get through it.
Join us for an open discussion on how to prioritize healthcare resources during a disaster. Learn how you and your neighbors can respond during these situations through awareness, preparation and cooperation.
Bring your ideas, questions and concerns to this open forum, and let your voice be heard. Your input will be used to help Illinois develop a healthcare plan during disasters.
