Click HERE to see restaurant inspection reports


For the past four years, Champaign Urbana Public Health District officials have discussed ways to best publicize restaurant inspections.

Health inspection reports of restaurants and food facilities are available by request from the health department. In June, the health department also began posting a monthly list of all inspected food facilities and the current status.

In 2011, CU-CitizenAccess.org began posting full inspection reports of all restaurants that failed routine health inspections since 2008.

As a service, we continue to post the full reports of failed health inspections as part of our searchable, interactive map.

By Christine Herman/For CU-CitizenAccess.org -- Home births have increased by more than 50 percent since 2004. But in 22 states, certified professional midwives have to work outside the law to assist women in home birth.

Although doctors and nurse midwives can assist home births, very few of them actually do, leaving many women without a single legal home-birth provider.
Experts discuss what some activists call a home birth crisis in one such state, Illinois.

By Sean Powers/Illinois Public Media -- Many lactation experts say newborns can get their nutrition needs met through formula, but that breast milk is preferred because of the additional health benefits. When mothers can’t produce enough breast milk for their baby or can’t use their breast milk due to medical reasons, donated milk is available --- but not enough of it, due to a nationwide shortage of pasteurized breast milk.
