emergency preparedness class

The Nodaway County Health Department is charged with being prepared to assist our community in the event of bioterrorism events, emergencies and natural disasters.   May 2011, we participated in a drill with our community partners.

  • Anxious schooldays
    Can school make kids worried or fearful? For some kids, at some point, yes. The start of a new school year can be a major event in a child’s life, especially if it’s a new school or maybe the start of first grade.
  • Teens and vaccines
    Teens don’t outgrow the need for vaccinations. At the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Laurie Elam-Evans points to some vaccinations for teens.
  • Aspirin and breast cancer treatment
    A preliminary study indicates overweight or obese postmenopausal women who got hormone therapy in breast cancer treatment were less likely to have the cancer recur – or for it to recur later – if they took aspirin or another non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
