Episode 20: Skokie’s Public Health Department with Dr. Catherine Counard

Hard to believe its been 20 episodes. This week Scott and Ilene travel to Skokie Village Hall where we meet with Dr. Catherine Counard.

Dr. Counard covers all the really exceptional programs the Village offers and the collaborative way the Health Department works.
