Although we create many opportunities for people to learn, we can't reach everyone. There are still women that don't know about age appropriate screenings, such as mammograms to detect breast cancer; generally mammograms begin at age 40 unless there is a family history of cancer.

This year please join us for a week of learning and activities October , The event is part of National Seat Check Saturday, and will include instruction on how to choose the right car seats for children, with an emphasis on how to install and use them correctly. Technicians will also explain the importance of registering the seats with the manufacturer so parents and caregivers can be notified if there is a recall.
No parent wants to ever get it wrong when it comes to a child's safety. That's why we're hosting this car seat check event on National Seat Check Saturday. Parents - don't think you know, know you know that your kids are secure in their car seats and are in the right seats for their ages and sizes. Car crashes are a leading killer of children, and the latest research from the U.
Sandi Bernard added that using age- and size-appropriate car seats and installing them correctly are the best ways to reduce these deaths.
Many of those kids could have survived if they had been buckled up. The week is dedicated to teaching parents and caregivers about the importance of correctly choosing, installing, and using car seats, booster seats, and seat belts.
Parents and caregivers will also be reminded of the importance of registering car seats with the manufacturer so they can be notified in the event of a recall.
NHTSA recommends keeping children rear-facing as long as possible, up to the top height or weight allowed by their particular seats. Once a child outgrows the rear-facing car seat, he or she is ready to travel in a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether. After outgrowing the forward-facing car seat, a child should ride in a booster seat until tall enough to fit in a seat belt properly. All parents and caregivers are invited to attend this free event.
For more information on child car seat safety, as well as how to find other car seat check events, go to www. US Attorney's office hosts "Addiction and Suicide: Communities in Crisis" conference. One of the highest priorities of the United States Department of Justice, as outlined by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is to reduce drug overdose deaths. In , 72, American lost their lives to drug overdoses.
That's almost half of the population of Sioux Falls — vanishing in a single year. For Americans under the age of 50, drug overdose is now the leading cause of death. That wasn't true even five years ago," said U. Addiction and suicide touch all levels of society, in every part of our state: Suicide is also a growing problem across the nation and in South Dakota.
Suicide is third highest cause of death for children ages in the state, and the second highest cause of death for young adults ages ," said Deb Fischer-Clemens, Senior Vice President for Public Policy at Avera Health. The keynote speaker for the conference was Ryan Leaf, former NFL player and collegiate football coach, who experienced addiction to prescription opioids and now is a voice for recovery, with a mission to reach anyone in need of hope.
More than conference attendees also heard stories from individuals who had personal or family experience with the tragedies of addiction, depression and suicide.
This was the fifth annual conference sponsored by Avera and the U. Attorney's Office to explore issues of justice, well-being and safety in our state and region. Past topics have included human trafficking, living with disabilities, child sexual abuse and the opioid epidemic. The goal of the conference was to reduce overdose and suicide deaths by opening up a larger conversation between people from all walks of life in South Dakota. Attendees represented the legal system, government, health care, education, social work, ministries and more.
Attorney Parsons at the close of the conference. The opioid crisis that's plagued many areas of the country has reached epidemic levels, and it's on the rise. Last year alone, more than 72, Americans lost their lives to drug overdoses.
Of those, nearly 50, were related to opioids — a highly addictive drug that can be fatal when misused, whether in the form of a prescription drug or illicit substance. No state is immune to this battle, including South Dakota.
And while it might not have affected our state the same way it has others, I can say with certainty that one opioid-related death is one too many. Sadly, we've lost hundreds of fellow South Dakotans to this epidemic over the last decade, and nationwide, the problem is only getting worse. Today more people are dying from opioid overdoses than in motor vehicle accidents. It's now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Taking on this crisis requires a strong and coordinated response from local communities all the way to the federal government, which has an important role to play in this battle.
In a place where politics too often rules the day, I'm glad this fight has garnered the strong bipartisan support it deserves in Washington, D. It's too important not to. In , Congress passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act and the 21st Century Cures Act, which devoted substantial resources to states to empower them to tackle this problem in communities around the country. All told, funding to combat this crisis has increased by nearly 1, percent over last four years.
Most recently, Congress passed the Opioid Crisis Response Act, which is the result of more than 70 proposals from senators across the ideological spectrum, myself included.
Five Senate committees, including the Senate Commerce Committee, which I chair, contributed to this effort that will help reduce use and supply, encourage recovery, and drive innovation and long-term solutions. The bill includes my Expanding Telehealth Response to Ensure Addiction Treatment Act, which will take meaningful steps toward expanding access to telehealth technology for Medicare patients being treated for substance use disorder.
Telehealth is critical for rural states like South Dakota, which is why I'm glad this particular provision was included in the broader legislation. It also includes my Fighting Opioid Abuse in Transportation Act, which would close a safety gap in railroad drug and alcohol testing regulations and require certain federal agencies to include fentanyl, an opioid drug, in the drug-testing panel.
Angela Kennecke, a journalist who is familiar to many South Dakotans, lost her daughter to the opioid crisis. Angela has bravely shared her family's experience, saying, in part, "I think it's best if I just tell my story and let everyone out there know what happened to my daughter.
Because I really believe it could happen to anyone's daughter. It can happen in anyone's family. It can happen to anyone's family. That's why Congress has taken this issue head on. When I say one opioid-related death is one too many, it's people like Angela's daughter, Emily, who I'm talking about. We can curb this epidemic, and with the tools that are being deployed nationwide, I'm confident we will. The Senate bill must now be reconciled with House-passed legislation before it can be sent to the president for his signature.
Today this bill is one step closer to the president's desk, and we are one step closer to providing much-needed assistance to those who need it the most. I hope my colleagues in the House will consider this important piece of legislation without delay. Thune has long advocated for the use of telehealth as a means to increase access to health care services in rural communities, like those throughout South Dakota approved by the Finance Committee.
It also addresses a major on-going drug abuse issue by requiring that the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Transportation include fentanyl in the drug-testing panel, subject to findings on available testing approved by the Commerce Committee. Shelley Moore Capito R-W. It would also protect individuals with opioid use disorder and their families from harmful and misleading addiction treatment programs or products.
Many times, addiction starts with a legal painkiller prescription from a doctor following surgery or to manage chronic pain. Because opioids are highly addictive, they can easily lead to abuse. When the prescription runs out, people attempt to buy them illegally on the street or turn to dangerous substances such as heroin or fentanyl. I'm pleased that we were able to pass the Opioid Crisis Response Act and I urge the president to sign it into law so those suffering from addiction can get the help they need as quickly as possible.
S Senate to pass comprehensive, bipartisan legislation to combat the ongoing, nationwide substance abuse crisis. The legislation includes provisions Heitkamp successfully fought for to address the ripple effects of North Dakota's overdose epidemic among children, families, and rural communities.
Over the past few years, drug abuse and drug-related deaths have steeply risen across rural America. In North Dakota, drug-related deaths increased by nearly percent from to And from to , opioid deaths in rural America quadrupled among year olds. The bipartisan Opioid Crisis Response Act includes key pieces from a bill Heitkamp introduced to address and mitigate the detrimental impact exposure to trauma, like opioid and methamphetamines abuse, can have on children.
Traumatic experiences such as those related to addiction can lead to severe health and behavioral complications that can impact children throughout their lives. Young people who experience four or more traumatic events are three times more at risk of heart disease or lung cancer, while those who experience six or more traumatic events are 30 times more likely to attempt suicide.
Right now, we're witnessing an entire generation of American children who could be scarred for life due to the substance abuse they've witnessed in their families. That's why it's so important that this bipartisan bill also includes my provisions to mitigate the impacts of childhood exposure to trauma, boost the mental and behavioral health workforce, and commit to evidence-based evaluations and interventions. This legislation is an important and needed step, but we must keep fighting for additional support, so all North Dakota families and communities are strong and safe.
The legislation also includes Heitkamp's provisions to improve the Opioid State Targeted Response STR grant program, which she proposed in legislation she introduced earlier this year.
It would increase flexibility, enable tribes to apply directly for grants, and create a tribal set-aside. According to the U. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC , American Indians and Alaska Natives had the highest overdose death rates of any group in and the largest percentage change in the number of opioid-related deaths over time.
The provisions from Heitkamp's Trauma-Informed Care for Children and Families Act she fought to include in the Opioid Crisis Response Act would combat the crisis and boost access to trauma-informed treatment by:.
Establishing an interagency task force to identify best practices. Department of Education, U. Department of Justice, and relevant tribal agency professionals would work to identify a set of best practices that improve capacity and coordination for the identification, referral, and support of children and families that have experienced or at risk of experiencing trauma.
Understanding the prevalence of trauma. Data collection and reporting by states would be expanded to include Adverse Childhood Experiences ACEs in behavioral health surveys. Funding would provide technical assistance, direct services to communities, and would support evaluations and dissemination of best practices in trauma-informed care for children and families.
Integrating mental health practices in schools. Grants would link educational agencies with mental health systems to increase student access to evidence-based trauma support services to help prevent and mitigate trauma that children and youth experience due to substance abuse. Health professionals in the National Health Service Corps would be able to provide behavioral and mental health services in schools or other community-based settings.
Additionally, trauma-informed training would be included as part of graduate education and training programs. The bipartisan legislation also includes critical provisions that would strengthen prevention and education programs, expand access to medication assisted treatment MAT , and improve wrap-around services for those in recovery.
Additionally, this bill includes a measure that would help prevent fentanyl and other illegally-trafficked synthetic drugs from being shipped through the international mail system by strengthening federal agencies' ability to screen shipments that are coming into the country. New app and harnesses power of museums to better lives of people living with Dementia. Paul, MN — Sept. The program offers training workshops, resources and activities, including the "My House of Memories" app, the first of its kind in the world.
The app features more than interactive pages of MNHS collection items, which can help those living with dementia draw on memories to create personal connections with family, friends and caregivers.
The collection items include objects, photographs, music and video that were curated by people living with dementia and their caregivers, including African-Americans who selected items that connect to the black community. Seeing how these museum resources can create meaningful, person-centered engagement for American audiences, and African-Americans in particular, has been very rewarding. Museums can be fantastic resources at helping unlock memories, improve communication and understanding, and enrich the lives of those living with dementia.
We're excited to see how the U. MNHS will also hold training workshops across the state for professional and family caregivers, aimed at helping participants develop new skills and understanding in caring for those living with dementia. Participants will receive a toolkit and view training videos based on the real-life stories of people living with dementia. Family caregiver workshops will be held in spring To find out more about the workshops, visit mnhs.
This initiative will complement other MNHS memory loss programs, including sensory-based tours, memory cafes and a baking lab. Alliance, an organization of Minnesota and Wisconsin museums focused on serving the memory loss community.
The word "chronic" means persistent and unrelenting; something that doesn't go away quickly. When you preface that word with "pain," you have a potentially crippling condition which affects too many people in too many guises. Chronic pain can develop in a variety of conditions: The bad news is that it is often very difficult to get rid of chronic pain, like an unwanted guest who never wants to leave.
Surgery or medicines especially opioids are often minimally effective at treating chronic pain and sometimes make things worse. Even injections of steroids, which is an invasive, expensive and overused procedure, is typically useless for chronic pain.
In the end, too many people continue to suffer. The pain can eventually take control and cause the person to become helpless, inactive, and shut down completely. It is important to understand that immobility often makes the situation worse. If a joint or muscle is not used regularly, it barks and bites when called upon to be moved, the pain of which can dissuade further use. This cycle, if unbroken, can result in an increasing level of immobility, severe disability, and more time to dwell on the pain.
This is exactly the reason they say "use it or lose it! Paradoxically, one of the most effective ways of breaking people out of this cycle is for them to change negative habits and to become more active. Regular stretching, good posture, adequate sleep, a good diet, and regular exercise can work wonders where modern medicines fail.
Of course, each case is different, and sometimes a trapped nerve needs release or severe inflammation needs to be turned down and rested. However, carefully moving through stiffness and discomfort can give us considerable relief.
It will be tough in the beginning, and results may not be instantaneous, but the struggle of starting healthier habits in the face of chronic pain can be well worth the long-term benefits.
Studies show that return to function, although not easy, is the key to rehabilitation. Chronic pain doesn't have to mean progressive immobility, disability, and hopelessness. We should remember to accept the pain when we have to, and, when advised by the doctor, to move those muscles.
I am located at the Sisseton Middle School. I have two wonderful children: I choose to work with JOM students because helping children is the most rewarding job I can think of!

The grant will be used to address community needs and to improve the sustainability of natural resources and agricultural sustainability in Indian Country. Jeremy Guinn, chair of the Environmental Science and Research Program at UTTC, says this funding is a way to reach beyond academic programs and serve the community directly. It is a broad area but these are interconnected fields and we are looking to provide research, information, and resources to the tribes in those three areas, Guinn says.
The Intertribal Research and Resource Center will be in addition to the work already happening on the college campus through the Land Grant program and the Environmental Science and Research Program that focuses on cultivating sustainable food on campus as well as research into sustaining natural resources.
