To spread stroke awareness in Chicago’s Southland community, Governors State University’s College of Health and the Illinois Department of Public Health Department Human Services have partnered to spread stroke awareness for high-risk communities in the Southland.

HB 5014 is focused on not only stroke recognition but also prevention tactics. It will give this community access to dependable, factual sources of information about strokes.
The Illinois Department of Public Health will provide allocated funds to Governors State University to support this imperative stroke awareness campaign. State Representative Debbie Meyers- Martin has hopes that Stroke Awareness becomes a constant topic of conversation to ensure the wellness of residents across Illinois.

The Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) was made aware of new phishing attacks targeting Illinoisans. Bad actors posing as IDES representatives are sending emails to victims, designed to trick Illinoisans into disclosing their personal information. These scams falsely advertise an increase in weekly benefits.
It is critical for claimants and victims of fraud to remain vigilant to detect fraudulent correspondence:
• Strengthen and protect account information. Claimants should ensure they maintain a strong password, and never share their personal information with an untrustworthy source. Additional tips are available on IDES’s fraud webpage.
