The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District recently released their 2022 annual report, and even just a quick glance of it illustrates the wide swath of services that they provide for the community. We’ve shared about many of them: STI Clinics, providing period products, breast milk donation, dental exams, free Narcan kits and training, to name a few. And of course, their work was invaluable throughout the pandemic.

Here are a few interesting stats from 2022:

  • Their Give Back Garden grew and distributed 1500 pounds of produce.
  • They provided 25,746 meals through their Summer Meal Program.
  • In partnership with United Way’s Bottom Line Diaper Bank, they gave out 11,000 diapers.
  • They saw 1274 people in their STI Clinics.
  • 332 patients visited the Family Planning Clinic.
  • 707 people were trained in administering Narcan, and 6594 kits were distributed.
  • They saw 6001 children in their dental clinic.

This is just a snapshot of what happens at CUPHD. This latest report is not yet linked to their website, but you can find them from previous years here.
