Promoting personal and community health, preventing illness and detecting diseases early improves the quality of life for Cook County residents. The mission of the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) is to protect and promote health while preventing illness, disability and premature death among all residents of suburban Cook County. Environmental health inspections play a critical role in achieving this mission, and the CCDPH looks to: prevent the spread of food borne illnesses by restaurants, enforce tobacco regulations, and protect County residents from mosquito-borne illnesses. Furthermore, CCDPH’s strategic plan identifies four key areas of focus: chronic disease prevention, youth sexual health improvement, violence prevention, and access to healthcare services.
