St. Clair County Community College Athletic Director Dale Vos has been named the Michigan Community College Athletic Association Athletic Director of the Year.  “It’s an honor to win this award, and being chosen by my peers makes it even more special,” Vos said. “This wouldn’t be possible without the great coaches we have at SC4, and my incredible secretary, Sheryl Kramer.”  Vos led an athletic department that had a successful year, as the women’s volleyball team won the MCCAA Eastern Conference, the women’s basketball team won the National Junior College Athletic Association District H tournament and placed eighth at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament, and the softball team qualified for the NJCAA District J tournament.  Two of those teams accomplished those feats with first-year head coaches in Kristen Michaelis (volleyball) and Akilah Edmondson (women’s basketball).  Vos – who also coaches the men’s basketball and men’s golf teams at SC4 – serves as the MCCAA Eastern Conference Chairman and the sports director for men’s basketball in the conference. He is also the regional Men’s Division Director and Men’s Golf Chair.  It’s the second time Vos has won the award, as he was also honored in 1997.

St. Clair County Health Department Announces Plan for 2016 Behavioral Risk Factor Survey and Community Health Needs Assessment Process

health departmentThe St. Clair County Health Department is notifying residents that over the next several months, they will be conducting the 2016 St. Clair County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) telephone survey.  The county is contracting with a vendor, “Northern Illinois University” displaying an “815” area code. Trained staff will identify themselves calling on behalf of the St. Clair County Health Department. Residents ages 18 and over will be randomly selected and contacted via land line or cell phone. Questions will be asked to gather information and data about the health behaviors and social issues of St. Clair County residents.  The Health Department previously conducted surveys in 2000, 2005 and 2010. Once the BRFS is completed, a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) will be developed and shared with community members. By collecting behavioral health risk data at the local level, the BRFS and CHNA are powerful tools for targeting and building community health improvement plans.  To collect accurate, valid data, the Health Department is strongly encouraging residents whom are called to answer and participate in this 30 minute survey.  The survey is anonymous. Specific questions such as Social Security Numbers, last names, home addresses or credit card information will NOT be asked in the interview.  For more information about the survey or any other questions, please contact the St. Clair County Health Department at(810) 987-5300 or visit our website to view past Community Health Assessments http://www.stclaircounty.org/Offices/health/CHAP.aspx.
