About Rethink Your Drink

Obesity rates in suburban Cook County are growing. Drinking sugar-loaded beverages like pop, sodas, sports and energy drinks can lead to obesity and other health-related problems like heart disease and diabetes.

“Rethink Your Drink” is an educational campaign from the Cook County Department of Public Health to educate suburban Cook County residents on the health risks associated with drinking sugar loaded beverages and why it’s better to choose healthier options. This project is one effort funded by the Department of Health and Human Services through a Communities Putting Prevention to Work grant that CCDPH is using to improving the health of residents through a variety of programs.
