Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center employees joined the American Heart Association’s 13-year celebration 'Go Red for Women Day' recently. Claxton-Hepburn’s Employee Wellness Team, The Hepburn Health Nuts, planned activities around the hospital on 'Go Red for Women Day' to help raise awareness and educate staff, patients and visitors about the dangers of heart disease in women. Employees were encouraged to wear red and additional messaging was displayed in the medical center’s main lobby, Cornerstone Cafe and on the employee email system. Above are the some of the employees who dressed in red.View enlarged photo.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Due to an extremely warm winter, many winter activities and events have been put on hold or cancelled, including the annual St. Lawrence River Walleye Association Northern Pike Challenge event.

LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Police and emergency responders who administered Naloxone to people suffering opiate or opioid overdoses in St. Lawrence County have saved at least five lives since 2014. The drug neutralizes the effect of narcotics like morphine, fentanyl, oxycodone and heroin, but some police agencies in the county do not carry it.
Do think all law enforcement officers and emergency responders should be trained to administer Naloxone?
