FHN Community Education

Center of Innovative Learning

At FHN, our goal is to be here for you and your family when you need us the most. Oftentimes, that's when you or a family member are ill or physically injured. However, we also strive to make a difference by working towards prevention of these illnesses and injuries. We hold many support groups, health screenings, trainings, programs, and courses in order to help make our homes, work places, and communities a safer place. By clicking on a program below, you can learn more about the course content, and dates, and requirements to register. Please contact us at 815-599-6707 or coil@fhn.org if you have any questions.
