11/30/2017 - Dr. Smart of MTHD Speaks at Independence Hall on November 30th
Arnold, CA...On Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 6pm at Independence Hall in Arnold, Dr. Randall Smart, Executive Director of the Mark Twain Health Care District will address residents of Ebbetts Pass on the state of health care in Calaveras County. Dignity Health’s current contract with the district expires in 2019. The health care district will decide between three options which include remaining with Dignity Health or another affiliate, choosing to operate the hospital independently or with a management-of-services agreement. All voters are requested to attend, if possible, as the district’s decision becomes an election issue in 2018 for the Calaveras registrant.


Dr. Smart will begin with a history of the hospital in order to bring the audience to a common understanding of the organization and workings of health care in the county. The Mark Twain Health Care District was formed 8/27/46 by the Calaveras voter. The governance of the district includes the executive director and the elected board : Lin Reed, President, Ann Radford FNP, Susan Atkinson MSW, Debbie Sellick CMP and Talibah Al-Rafiq Member-at-Large. Peggy Stout is the Administrative Assistant. The board is dedicated to the health and well-being of the individuals and communities of Calaveras County through direct support and education.

San Andreas, CA...National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

11/07/2017 - Special Screening of “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opioid Addict,” November 7, Calaveras P
San Andreas, CA...Calaveras County had a rate of 124 opioid prescriptions per 100 residents in 2016, according to the California Department of Public Health. To better understand what this means for our community, the public is invited to a free educational event on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at the Calaveras Performing Arts Center at Calaveras High School in San Andreas. The evening will begin at 5pm with refreshments and an informal opportunity to chat with experts and gather resources about opioid addiction and local recovery services. A screening of the 50-minute hard-hitting documentary “Chasing the Dragon” will take place at 6pm, followed by a panel discussion featuring local medical and behavioral health experts and individuals sharing their experiences with opioid addiction.


The overuse of prescription opioids has become a national as well as a local epidemic. Opioid-related deaths continue to rise in the United States. Every day, 91 Americans die from an opioid overdose. In 2016, doctors wrote 23,684,377 opioid prescriptions, with 53,872 opioid prescriptions in Calaveras County alone. There were four opioid overdose deaths in Calaveras in 2016, which ranks Calaveras County among the top ten counties in the state in opioid-related deaths.

“We believe that education and awareness are the first steps to beginning community dialogue on this issue,” said David Sackman, deputy director for Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment at Calaveras County Health and Human Services Agency. “Parents, teens, teachers, and healthcare professionals are essential partners in addressing this epidemic and improving the health of our community, and we invite the entire community to join this important discussion.”

The event is being hosted and sponsored by the Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention in partnership with Calaveras County Public Health, Behavioral Health, Calaveras County Office of Education and other community organizations and individuals.

10/26/2017 - ‘Mammo-GLAM’ – ‘Girls-Night-Out’ with a Serious Purpose
San Andreas, CA...Two “Mammo-GLAM” events marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October give local women the opportunity to overcome fear of a critical health screening by surrounding it with some quality girlfriend time. Think of it as “girls-night-out” with a serious purpose – helping women overcome mammogram fears and shape a healthy future. Oct. 10 and Oct. 26 are the dates for these unique gatherings at Mark Twain Medical Center.



The Main Lobby will be the setting from 5 to 7 p. m. both evenings with easy access to the Diagnostic Imaging department for screening appointments. “Mammo-GLAM” can help busy women fit a life-saving screening into their daily routine – during the evening hours.

Secure your doctor’s order for a mammogram and then call to reserve a screening time. If you are not due for a screening, join the fun anyway to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Fun activities include a “bling” photo booth with colorful props to encourage dress up that is expected to spark social media fun as attendees post and text their “glammed-up looks” with personal messages. Zumba fun, healthy lifestyle resources and tasty refreshments will also be featured.

Call 745-2517 for reservations and more information.

The Mark Twain Medical Center Foundation is holding a raffle throughout October benefiting women’s health programs and tickets will be available at both events. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20. The prize is a basket of items with a total value of more than $600 – including local restaurants, wineries and boutiques. For raffle information, call 754-2624.

Mark Twain Medical Center and Mark Twain Health Care District are co-sponsors of the “Mammo-GLAM” campaign. MTHCD Board Member Susan Atkinson notes, “The district is excited to be taking an active part in this project focusing on women's breast health through education and prevention.”

She adds, “We have purchased breast self-exam models and will offer training on their use at the Mammo-GLAM events. We will also be subsidizing Common Ground Senior Services to help provide rides for women who have no other means of transportation to/from the events.”


Common Ground will have an eight passenger bus and three vans (three passengers and one wheelchair each) available to begin picking folks up one hour before the event and returning them up to one hour after the event. Call 209-498-2246 to request a ride.
