11/09/2017 - Men's Health is Workshop Focus for the Month of November
San Andreas, CA...Men’s health is the topic of a free workshop on Nov. 9 at Mark Twain Medical Center. “Tackle Your Health” is the theme for the 10 a. m. to noon event focusing on lifestyle and health resources for men. A variety of presenters and health resource organizations will be featured and lunch is included. There is limited seating. Call 754-5919 for reservations and information. “Tackle Your Health” is part of MTMC’s ongoing series of “A Plan 4 Me” free planning workshops. It is co-sponsored by MTMC and the Mark Twain Health Care District. The district is providing a donated San Francisco 49ers DeForest Buckner laser-engraved football valued at $50 to be awarded at the workshop along with “Tackle Your Health” tee-shirts.


Speakers include MTMC Chief Medical Officer Dr. Lonnie Smith, who will discuss “Sleep apnea and how to live a rested and healthy life” and ‘Hope for hearing loss and support devices.” Calaveras County District Attorney Barbara Yook will take about grandparents’ rights and protecting yourself from criminals who target seniors.

Additional speakers are Dr. Andrew McCoy addressing colonoscopies and proper healthy maintenance and Dr. Mark Faryan discussing health screenings that can save your life. Attendees will each receive a binder to fill with materials from the speakers and participating local organizations.

Mark Twain Health Care District is subsidizing Common Ground Senior Services to help provide rides for men who have no other means of transportation to/from the workshop. Vehicles will be available to begin picking folks up one hour before the event and returning them up to one hour after it ends. Call 209-498-2246 to request a ride.

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.
