Mille Lacs Health System

The Mille Lacs Area is one of several communities across Minnesota whose citizens are working together to improve the lives of people with Alzheimer’s and the lives of their caregivers. ACT on Alzheimer’s® is partnering with these communities to help them become ready for the increasing number of people who will have dementia as the population ages.

ACT on Alzheimer’s® is a volunteer-driven, statewide collaboration preparing Minnesota for the impacts of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. One of its goals is to help communities become “dementia-capable.” A dementia-capable community is informed, safe, respects individuals with dementia and their families and caregivers, and provides options that support quality of life.

Mille Lacs Health System will be holding immunization clinics on the following dates:
at the Onamia clinic, on Wed., July 30th from 9 a.m. to 11:30; then at the Isle clinic from 1:30-4:30 p.m. An alternate date is also on Wed., August 6th at the Isle clinic, from 9-11:30 a.m.; and then at the Onamia clinic from 1:30-4:30 p.m.

MLHS wants to remind parents that some of the Immunization requirements for school children have changed. Call and make an appointment to go over your child’s immunization schedule with a nurse. If you have immunization records, please bring those along to your appointment.

Shootings and bombings are a part of the news cycle narrative from time to time. Typically those involved are shocked that such an thing could occur in their school, place of business, or at a community activity. But occur they do, so preparation for response to that type of event is smart and can save lives.
