Oral Health Task Force Receives Funding to Continue Care Mission

Oral Health Task Force Receives Funding to Continue Care Mission

#LSN_Health   #LSN_CookCounty #LSN_MNNews   

Cook County, Minnesota - August 9, 2019  (LSN)   The Oral Health Task Force (OHTF), a program of the North Shore Health Care Foundation (NSHCF), has recently secured four grants to continue its mission to provide greater access to and address gaps in oral health care for the children of Cook County and the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. The Task Force received funding from:

  • The Cook County Community Fund - $3,000
  • Arrowhead Electric Cooperative - $5,000
  • MN Department of Health – Healthy Baby, Healthy Teeth Mini-grant $3,000
  • Northland Foundation - $10,000

“We’re pleased to have been successful in our applications to secure this grant funding and are grateful to these organizations for recognizing the critical need for children’s oral health care,” said Paul Nelson, OHTF Chair and NSHCF Board Member. “The Oral Health Task Force has been able to help over 800 children and youth and pregnant moms with dental care locally because of the collaborative way we are addressing oral health here in Cook County.”

Having healthy teeth is an integral part of children's overall health and well-being. Early preventive care such as screenings and sealants can keep teeth healthy and reduce the need for expensive restorative care later. Although tooth decay is almost completely preventable, it is the most common childhood disease. Studies show links between ear and sinus infections, weakened immune systems, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Lack of dental care can affect children's speech, nutrition, growth and development. Over 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental-related illness.

The funding received will help the OHTF complete annual screenings through all local schools and other organizations, and will help support a generous sliding fee scale program to cover children prenatal to 26 years of age with other dental care needs not covered by other programs. The OHTF employs an Oral Health Educator/Hygienist and works with Grand Marais Family Dentistry and the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic for care provision.

 

About the Task Force
The Oral Health Task Force works to provide dental care to the children of Cook County and the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. We educate the community on the importance of early preventative care and promote financial assistance that makes dental care more affordable. In addition to leadership from the North Shore Health Care Foundation, the Task Force includes representation from:

  • Sawtooth Mountain Clinic 
  • Local schools and school nurses,
  • Grand Marais Family Dentistry,
  • Cook County Public Health & Human Services, and
  • the Grand Portage Health Service.

More information about the OHTF is available at NorthShoreHealthCareFoundation.org or by calling 218-387- 2334.

Access to health care a significant problem - Thursday, August 8, 2019

#LSN_Health #LSN_TBay     

THUNDER BAY,  ONTARIO - August 8, 2019  (LSN)   The study finds more than 2 million Canadians aged 55 and older face significant barriers when accessing the health care system in their province, such as being unable to find a family doctor or experiencing lengthy wait-times for surgery, diagnostic tests, or specialist visits.

SUPERIOR, WISCONSIN – June 11, 2018  (LSN) The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) has awarded the contract for implementing the federal Beaches Environmental Assessment and Coastal Health (BEACH) Act in Douglas County to the Lake Superior Research Institute (LSRI) at the University of Wisconsin-Superior for the third consecutive year.

LSRI will monitor Lake Superior beaches for the presence of E. coli, a bacteria found in the environment that can make people sick, to reduce the risk of disease for users of coastal, recreational beaches in Douglas County. As part of this monitoring effort, LSRI will also collect sanitary survey data at each of the monitored beaches. These surveys are designed to collect data on parameters that may influence E. coli concentrations, such as wave height, water temperature, and number of gulls. Since bacteria samples have a short holding time of 24 hours, the proximity of LSRI’s laboratories, which are located on the UW-Superior campus, were a factor in LSRI being selected to conduct the testing.

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO -  April 22, 2018  (LSN For the past six years, I spend a considerable amount of time on the streets and in other places with those suffering from alcohol and substance abuse. Some are homeless, some engage in illegal activities that provide the drugs that their raging bodies scream for. Some have become sex trade workers.   I have listened to the horrors of their inner pain and struggles.  I have held many with tears and I have smudged with many. 

I listen to stories about the gangs from Ottawa and Toronto—how these gangs operate on “crack for credit” This operation of “lending” crack is contributing to the drug epidemic in Thunder Bay.  In addition, it is a known fact that crack cocaine is being laced with fentanyl and the gangs hunt for the vulnerable ones—ones that may be homeless, ones that live in specific low income areas. These gangs “lend” crack in exchange for the use of the borrower’s home which in turn, is used for the gang’s drug base.

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO -  October 11, 2017 -  (LSN)  Over 2017, the Thunder Bay District Health Unit has seen an increase in the number of cases of invasive group A streptococcal (IGAS) infections in our community. This infection develops when the bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes gets into the blood, joints, lungs, or lining of the brain. Streptococcus pyogenes also causes more common diseases, like strep throat and minor skin infections.

Anybody can get an IGAS infection. However, in our area, IGAS reflects health inequities, and infection most commonly affects a very vulnerable group of people: individuals who have significant underlying illnesses, lack adequate housing, or use injection drugs. IGAS infections tend to be more common in the fall and winter, so we are expecting more cases.
