Minority Health


The Department's Center for Minority Health Services was created to provide information and technical assistance regarding the health care needs of minority populations; and to develop, maintain and enhance health care services in minority communities. To achieve this goal, the Center works with state and local entities to heighten awareness of minority health issues and services across the state.

The Center's Refugee Program coordinates health assessment and screening for Illinois refugees and Orderly Departure Program immigrants through the identification, referral for treatment and follow–up of observed health problems. For more information contact Jenny Aguirre at 312-814-1538 or the main office at 217-785-4311.
