As you may know, last week IGHS was the victim of a scam via e-mail. As of today, we believe we have done what was needed to be done to resolve the issue. That being the case, the IGHS e-mail is now back in service. That e-mail is: IGHS.research@outlook.com. However, going forward, should you experiencing any problems with “unusual” email generated from IGHS, please call us 217-431-8733. Thank you, Melanie Stevenson, President

IGHS will be re-opening to our patrons on Tuesday February 2, 2021 @ 10:00 a.m. Our hours are: Tuesday – Friday 10:00 – 3:00 p.m. We are closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
