New Research Reveals Medications Are the Leading Cause of Accidental Poisoning Deaths Among Children Today 
“Safe Storage, Safe Dosing” Campaign to Focus on Medication Safety 

Washington, DC – Today Safe Kids Worldwide released a new research report that found while the death rate among children from poisoning has been cut in half since the late 1970s, the percentage of all child poisoning deaths due to medications has nearly doubled, from 36 percent to 64 percent.

Safe Storage, Safe Dosing, Safe Kids:  A Report to the Nation on Safe Medication examines trends in morbidity and mortality of medication poisoning among children ages 14 and under. The report underscores the challenge of medication-related poisoning among children and offers solutions that will reverse the trends. Safe Kids also proposes specific roles that parents and other caregivers, industry, governments, and the medical community can play in improving medication safety through safe storage and safe dosing.

How can you tell if you're hitting the mark when it comes to good oral care? Generally, your 
teeth and gums should not bleed, be painful, or feel rough or sharp to your tongue.  Your breath 
should be fresh for at least a couple of hours after brushing in the morning and after having 
eaten breakfast. One of the easiest ways to prevent gum disease is to clean your teeth properly, 
so try these tricks for a healthier mouth.

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Kevin Young as our new Optometrist, who is already receiving high praise from the community.  More frames and lens options are now available thanks to our teaming up with Thundercloud Optical in Omaha, Nebraska.  Order placement and delivery can be expected to take 4-5 days now, down from the previous 10-15 days.

We are in the process of expanding the number of exam rooms at the Shawnee Clinic from four to eight.  We welcome Dr. John Jutting, MD to our medical staff, and will be bringing more health care providers on board to offer more services in the near future.

Our Shawnee Clinic Pharmacy is now filling prescriptions for all Native Americans, and is now open through the lunch hour.
