Caring Community Coalition: Showing Children Love

This message is brought to you by the Community Caring Coalition:

  1. Children need a minimum of 8 touches during a day to feel connected to a parent
  2. Each day, children need one meaningful eye-to-eye conversation with a parent
  3. There are 9 minutes during the day that have the greatest impact on a child: when they wake up, come home from school, and go to bed

These meetings provide a place where people can learn from each other while also receiving information from health experts. Activities include learning and demonstrating recipes for diabetes-friendly meals. 

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of every month at 6:00 PM at the health department. For more informaiton or to participate in the program, call Jonelle at 435-657-3260. Click "Read More" to see a story by KSL on the program.

NALOXONE Avaialble at the Health Department

Do you or someone you know struggle with an addiction to heroin or opioid prescription medications (such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, and fantanyl)? Overdose with opioids is a significant danger that can cause death.

Naloxone is an inexpensive, fast-acting drug that when administered during an opioid overdose, blocks the effects of opiates on the brain and restores breathing within two to three minutes of administration. The health department has a limited supply of Naloxone nasal spray available to the public. For more information or to make an appointment to receive a Naloxone kit, call 435-657-3260.
