CARBONDALE — Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH) has announced plans to open The Place at University Mall, where residents may access health information and resources needed to achieve or maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Southern Illinois residents may submit a photo to be displayed throughout the facility. Photographers are encouraged to use their cameras to showcase what Southern Illinois living means to them. Images should convey the beauty and benefits of living in Southern Illinois. Possible subjects may include nature, events or people.

The Place Photo Contest will end Dec. 15, 2012 with finalists selected in January 2013. Winning photos will be unveiled during the grand opening of The Place in 2013.
