Illinois Public Health Institute

The Illinois Public Health Institute builds partnerships to promote prevention and improve public health systems that maximize health and quality of life for the people of Illinois.

How we helped

In 2011, McAlpine Consulting was contracted by the Illinois Public Health Institute (IPHI) to help facilitate a series of Town Hall Meetings and Focus Groups all across Illinois. The Listening Tour went to a total of 11 cities ranging from Carbondale to Joliet; Peoria to Effingham; Moline to East St. Louis. Laura, Mairita and Mac joined IPHI’s Peter Eckart and Sarah Rittner in the tour bus (i.e. minivan) to all 11 cities visited, and, in addition to facilitating the meetings, shared many meals, laughs, and pickles with Peter and Sarah.  Peter commemorated the experience through two haikus.
