County Health Department Chronic Disease Action Team

Committee Member

Community Harvest Educational Foundation is pleased to be part of the Kane County Health Department Chronic Disease Action Team. CHEF is among more than a dozen local government agencies, non-profits and health professionals to team up to work on issues related to chronic disease. In so many cases, those diseases are often food-related, such as obesity, high blood pressure and more. A healthy diet and lifestyle changes that CHEF promotes can be useful in helping to alleviate some of those concerns.
