Illinois Department of Public Health Launches Updated Website

At home or on the go, get the health information you need to know

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck today launched IDPH’s updated website that is interactive, user friendly, mobile friendly and offers more online services.

“We want to provide as much public health information as possible in an easily accessible way, whether you’re on a computer, your phone or a tablet,” said Dr. Hasbrouck. “Our updated website allows people to easily access health information such as immunization schedules or how to get a copy of your birth certificate. It also allows health care professionals to quickly find how to report information to IDPH, or how IDPH licensed professionals, like plumbers and EMTs, can easily find license renewal information.”

What you will find on the IDPH website:

  • Social media integration – access to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube directly from the website; and the ability to Tweet IDPH publications directly from the website.
  • Robust search capabilities – quickly find what you need.
  • Easy navigation using topics and services – frequent topics just a click away.
  • Interactive features - informational video, online form capabilities and the ability to add an IDPH sponsored event directly to an electronic calendar.

Check out our new website at and look for our new logo on and on Twitter@IDPH.

IDPH continues to implement its Five Year Strategy 2014-2018 to maximize IDPH's effectiveness, influence and value for promoting wellness, health equity, safety and improved health outcomes. Strategic plan priorities include developing and expanding partnerships; improving data utilization; reducing health disparities; improving regulatory compliance; and branding, marketing and communicating IDPH's value.
