Libertyville expert advises staying away from the added sugars in popular Halloween candy.
Passing out Halloween treats does not have to mean sugar overload for our children, according to Josh Rager, registered dietitian at Advocate Condell Wellness Services.

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed by the father of Rajmond Zalewa, the 26 year-old man who died on Nov. 16 in a construction site accident at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
