Our guest speakers are Vic Markowski, Drug Intelligence Officer, and Oscar Garduno, Public Health Analyst, from the Chicago High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA).

This meeting will be held at 3 p.m. at Joliet Junior College’s Morris Education Center, 725 School Street (Door 27), Morris.

One CEU is planned at a cost of $5 for LSW/LCSW, LPC/LCPC or RN.  Thank you to the Grundy County Health Department for making this possible.  Registration will be conducted at the door.  For more information, email: [email protected]

Download the Grundy County Community Resource Directory

With the help of BHA members and local providers, a revised and enlarged Grundy County Resource Directory has been developed for Grundy County.  The directory is organized by topic section (e.g. education, substance use disorder, etc.) and is indexed.

The Directory is a project under Chestnut Health Systems’ Substance Abuse Prevention Services grant under Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery.

Because directories become outdated quickly, the process of revisions and corrections is taking place immediately.  To report or suggest changes, please email the new or corrected information to [email protected]
