Great question. NPR’s “Health Shots” explains the benefits of 3D mammography, including new research that shows better detection of cancer with 3D images for women as young as 40 and women 65-plus (two separate studies). “If a breast cancer screening facility offers 3D, women should choose that,” NPR concludes, quoting radiologist Liane Philpotts, MD with Yale Cancer Center: “‘It's really a no-brainer. We just get so much more information with 3D, it seems an obvious choice.’”

It’s a sure sign of Spring: The annual Northfield Hospital Auxiliary Book Fair. The 2019 Book Fair will take place April 23-27 at the Northfield Ice Arena on Highway 3.
This Northfield tradition got its humble start 58 years ago on the back porch of an Auxiliary member’s home. (At the time, members thought they might collect enough books to do the sale once.)
Now in its 58th year, the Book Fair has raised a total of $1,000,000 since 1961 – including a record $67,532 in sales last year.
