IDOT Thanksgiving Family Health History Day

Thanksgiving is Family Health History Day

              Knowing your risks today can lead to a healthier
              tomorrow

              SPRINGFIELD – As many families gather for
              Thanksgiving, the conversation often drifts toward
              talking about traits and characteristics that run in
              their family, such as eye and hair color.  This year,
              Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr.
              LaMar Hasbrouck encourages families to also talk
              about health conditions that run in the family as
              part of the Nation’s 10th annual Family Health
              History Day.

              “Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer
              can run in families,” said Dr. Hasbrouck.  “While you
              can’t change your family health history, you can take
              steps to reduce your disease risk.  Knowing your
              family health history can help you and your health
              care provider predict your risk for health problems
              and identify screening and treatment options.  It is
              also a good time to talk with your family about
              health insurance and coverage of many inherited
              health conditions under the Affordable Care Act.”

              Under the Affordable Care Act (visit
              www.GetCoveredIllinois.gov), many preventive
              screenings will be covered, allowing health care
              providers to diagnose health problems in the early
              stages when they are easier to treat.

IDOT Thanksgiving Release

Illinois Law Enforcement to Crack Down on Front and
              Back Seat Belt Law Violators
              “Click it or Ticket” Thanksgiving Holiday Campaign
              Begins; Data Shows more Back Seat Passengers Need to
              Buckle Up

              CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Transportation
              (IDOT) today announced that the Illinois State Police
              (ISP) and more than 200 local police departments will
              be out in full force before and during the
              Thanksgiving holiday to crack down on motorists not
              buckling their seatbelts or driving under the
              influence. The stepped up effort, during one of the
              heaviest travel seasons of the year, is a part of the
              national “Click It or Ticket” campaign, which is
              geared towards saving lives by encouraging seat belt
              usage by every motorist in every seating position.

              This end of the year push comes as Illinois’
              year-to-date motor vehicle fatalities are about 4
              percent higher than this time last year, and also on
              the heels of data showing too few passengers are
              complying with the backseat belt law, enacted in
              2012.
