Elk Grove Village, Illinois

Elk Grove Village, Illinois is located in the northeastern part of the state. It is near O’Hare National Airport and is home to one of the largest industrial parks in the country and the largest one in Chicago. The village is located for the most part in Cook County with a small portion in DuPage County. Elk Grove Village, Il gets its name from a small herd of elk that is kept in a grove in Busse Woods. While not native to Illinois, these elk were brought from Montana by an early patron of the village. The elk are now protected and maintained by the Chicago Zoological Society and the Busse Forest Preserve. With a population of 33,127, the village is continuously bustling with activity – particularly due to the industrial park. Residents of Elk Grove Village are also aware of the issues surrounding sexually transmitted infections and, like the rest of the state, are working to better the situation.

STD Testing and Sexual Education in Elk Grove Village, IL

While smaller in size, Elk Grove Village still benefits from being near several educational resources pertaining to STI’s and HIV/AIDS. One such resource is the McKinley Health Center which is located within the city of Urbana. While Urbana is two hours away, they offer workshops as a service to those wishing to hold them. They also offer resources online, walk in appointments, and condom distribution.

Also located about an hour away is Angles for Sexual Health, Identity, and Education. They provide health care for youth up to the age of 25, education for children ages 5-12, and a variety of activities and services for teens who identify as questioning, transgender, lesbian, gay, or bisexual. They also provide clinics and counseling and have a Pride Youth Program for LGBTQ teens. Their Health Education gives fact based information to Junior and High school students.

Within the local system, students are facing the same issue as in other schools across the country. However, educators in Illinois seem to be more determined to teach medically sound facts than those in some other states. In August of 2013 Bill HB 2675 was passed. This piece of legislation prohibits abstinence only education within public schools. If schools decide to not include comprehensive information they can choose to not have a sexual education course at all.

The most accessible place to get free condoms is The Open Door Health Center which is located in Elgin, Illinois. Elgin is a 30-minute drive from Hoffman Estates. This health center also provides health education pertaining to sexual well-being.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Elk Grove Village, IL

Men are more impacted by STI’s and HIV / AIDS than females. In 2014 there were 950 male cases reported in Cook County and DuPage County reported 88 cases. Female cases were fewer by more than half. Males also had a lower graduation rate in comparison to females. In 2015, there were 63,222 male graduates in comparison to 89,973 female graduates.

Additionally, Black, non-Hispanics also had a lower graduation rate, falling below White, non-Hispanics and Latinos. In 2015, there were 77,048 White, non-Hispanic graduates, 21,948 Latino graduates, and 21,442 Black, non-Hispanic graduates. The Black, non-Hispanic graduation rate was only around 14% in comparison to the White, non-Hispanic rate which was 53.5%. This low graduation rate could possibly correlate with the high amount of Black, non-Hispanic males infected with STI’s and HIV / AIDS.

Unlike other areas within the Unites States, there did not seem to be a correlation between ethnicity / poverty and the HIV rate. For example, White, non-Hispanics make up the greatest demographic of those living below the poverty level. However, there are 6.4 times more Black, non-Hispanic males within the state living with a disease and 18.7 more Black, non-Hispanic females. There could be a correlation between the number of cases reported in DuPage County and the number of Black, non-Hispanics that have a lower income in comparison to other demographics.

There could also be a correlation between the number of Chlamydia cases reported and the fact that White, non-Hispanics make up the greatest number of individuals living below poverty level. In 2012, 832 cases of Chlamydia were reported in relation to White, Non-Hispanics. This ethnic demographic had 713 individuals living below the poverty level.
