  • Domestic violence is becoming much more commonplace - 200,000 victims in DuPage - and the lethality is also significantly greater. Last year six DV victims were killed here. Annually, 29,000 children in our community witness acts of domestic violence.

    For physicians the message is clear - we have important opportunities to intervene. "It's critical that physicians ask the DV question," Judie Caribeaux, executive director of Family Shelter Service said. "There may be reluctance to engage, but no solution is needed in that moment. Just know that the FSS phone number will provide access to needed resources for the victim." The hotline is 630.469.5650.

    Family Shelter Service will also provide on-site training for medical office staff.

  • DCMS Meets with IL State Representative Villa

    We need to do more about addiction and mental health. That was the consensus this week as our DCMS Governmental Affairs Committee met with state respresentative Karina Villa (D-West Chicago).

    As a result of the meeting, DCMS and Rep. Villa plan to convene a meeting of area legislators and local leaders. The immediate goal is to better educate policy-makers about the problems and together identify opportunities to advance solutions in our community.

  • FDA and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are working closely with state and local health officials to investigate incidents of severe respiratory illnesses associated with the use of vaping products as quickly as possible. While the investigation is ongoing, FDA has created a Consumer Update to provide information for consumers to help protect themselves, as well as a new Lung Illnesses Associated with Use of Vaping Products webpage to provide an overview of these incidents and FDA’s actions to date, as well as recommendations for consumers, healthcare providers, and state health departments.

    Our Foundation

    Providing Student Scholarships

    Fifty years ago the DuPage County Medical Society led efforts to immunize our community against Polio – protecting thousands while prompting the creation of the DuPage Medical Society Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As our Foundation celebrates its Golden Anniversary, the $365,000 it has awarded in scholarships to area students in medicine and allied health professions remains tangible evidence of DCMS support for quality healthcare in our community, now and into the future.
