ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – State Rep. Mark Walker, D-Arlington Heights, issued the following statement today after Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike announced her upcoming retirement from the Department:
“Dr. Ezike has been no less than a beacon of hope and light during one of the greatest challenges Illinois has faced in generations. Her spirit is warm, kind, and full of a love for what she does and for keeping Illinoisans healthy and safe. She has saved lives.
There aren’t enough words to thank Dr. Ezike for her tireless efforts, but she deserves them all. I join Governor Pritzker, my colleagues in the General Assembly, and all Illinoisans in thanking and congratulating Dr. Ezike and wish her and her family all the best in the next chapter of her journey.”
