Cook County Health Receives $500,000 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Grant

In March, the Board of Commissioners approved a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for the Cook County Health Acupuncture in the Emergency Department (AED) program.

The goals of the program include enhancing Cook County Health’s guidelines on opioid prescription practices in the emergency department, providing acupuncture as an alternative medical intervention for people with headaches and jaw pain, and reducing emergency department admissions.

The project period for this grant is three years and will conclude in February of 2024.
