Our Lifestyle Medicine class has already helped many local people learn how to eat and exercise to lose weight and improve their quality of life.

The CGH Community Services Department offers FREE Blood Sugar and Blood Pressure checks at various locations several times every month. A low-cost Cholesterol and Glucose screening is also offered once monthly.

The CGH Diabetes Education department offers a FREE Pre Diabetes class every month for anyone who wants to learn more about how they can avoid diabetes and its complications.

CGH partners with the Whiteside County Health Department to provide one-on-one counseling with a Certified Tobacco Cessation Specialist.  Download our brochure here.
