Sakakawea Medical Center Earns ACR Accreditation

Sakakawea Medical Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

National Immunization Awareness Month

Immunization, or vaccination, helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. To stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia, adults need to get their shots — just like kids do. During National Immunization Awareness Month we encourage you, your friends, families and coworkers to stay up to date on their shots.

Healthy Tidbit

Mashed bananas can be substituted for fats. The creamy thickening power of mashed ripe banana acts as a great fat replacement in baking recipes. The consistency is ideal, and the bananas add nutrients like potassium, fiber, and vitamin B6. One cup mashed banana works perfectly in place of 1 cup butter or oil.
