This inexpensive Illinois campaign has effectively put its sponsors in the community eye for three years.
“The Quad City Health Initiative wants every individual in the Quad Cities to be the center of their health care team. This means that the individual understands their medication and medical treatments and shares this information with all of their providers at every visit. To help facilitate this communication, QCHI and its founding sponsors, Genesis Health System and Trinity Regional Health System, have distributed about 250,000 Health Facts Cards to community members since 2008. Free Health Facts Cards are available at Genesis and Trinity sites as well as at physician offices and pharmacies throughout the community. Both English and Spanish language versions of the Cards are available.”
