The Lee County Health Department (LCHD) recently presented its 2019 Friend of Public Health award to the Whiteside County Community Health Clinic in Rock Falls. Each year, in conjunction with National Public Health Week, LCHD employees nominate individuals or organizations that have demonstrated outstanding and consistent partnership with LCHD; and assisted the department in working towards its mission of promoting & protecting the health of Lee County residents. The Whiteside County Community Health Clinic was nominated and selected because of all it does for Lee County residents. LCHD refers clients on a regular basis to the clinic for primary, dental and behavioral health services.
