    June is National Safety Month

    When you stop and think about it, we can become injured and even killed at any time while at our work, on the roads or in our homes and communities. It's wise to take some time to recognize these possibilities and make decisions that promote the health and safety of ourselves and our loved ones. June is such a time.

    The National Safety Council has a web site that offers free tips to help anyone stay alert and aware of their personal safety and the safety of their loved ones.

    June 19 is World Sickle Cell Day

    June 19, World Sickle Cell Day

    Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders that cause red blood cells to become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a “sickle”. The sickle cells die early, which causes a constant shortage of red blood cells or they get stuck in small blood vessels and clog the blood flow. Both of these conditions can cause pain and other serious problems such infection, acute chest syndrome and stroke. SCD has become a world-wide health concern, and this day is promoted to bring attention to this health condition.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintains a National Resource Directory for those who want to learn more.
