We are part of a much bigger area called the Delta Region.

ie- our health outcomes are more similar to this area than the rest of the state, or the rest of the midwest.
These 7 areas represent the lower 16 counties of Illinois- which make up the northern part of the Delta.
These 7 local health departments conduct Illinois Project for Local Assessment of Needs (IPLANS) every 5 years that identify the local health needs in their jurisdiction.
These 7 health departments, along with
Southern Illinois Healthcare
and the
Center for Rural Health and Social Service Development
, spear-headed health-focused coalitions in "The Delta Region" in 2008.
