About DuPage Health Matters
DuPage Health Matters is a 501(c)(3) organization established by the DuPage County Board of Health for the purpose of funding innovative and strategic initiatives. The DuPage County Health Department (DCHD) is on the front lines providing services such as Covid-19 Pandemic emergency services, behavioral health services, clinical services for Medicaid recipients and providing education and advocacy in the area of community health.
Through philanthropic endeavors, the mission of DuPage Health Matters will be realized. Gifts from individuals, companies and organizations will help us battle pandemics, support first responders with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and continue to provide services to those facing the greatest behavioral health needs or public health necessities for women with infant children, vaccines, and dental services.
DCHD has been an innovative leader in developing new strategies to provide strategic public health services. With the help of generous donors, DuPage Health Matters can continue to provide innovation now and in the future.
DuPage Health Matters is led by a volunteer three member board that could be expanded to as many as sixteen members, who have an interest in being part of an organization that is able to assist in the funding of public health problems such as pandemics, opioid epidemic, behavioral health service innovation, basic necessities for the homeless, dental services, preventing the spread of viruses and disease and vaccinations for children and adults.
