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.’”
Busy women – especially those who care for kids and perhaps aging parents – tend to put their own health last.
We invite you to put yourself first for an evening.
Our first-ever Women’s Health Fair is an evening of health information for women at every age and stage. We invite you to celebrate your best health . . . your best self.
Staff and providers from 15 departments across NH+C welcome you with exhibits and activities, seminars, tours, refreshments – and a prize drawing for some pretty delightful gift baskets.
A free group workshop designed to help family caregivers take care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend. Whether you are helping a parent, spouse, or friend who lives at home, in assisted living, or in a nursing home, you will benefit from the tools presented in this program. You will learn strategies to better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face, as well as how to reduce stress, communicate more effectively, make tough decisions, and reduce feelings of guilt, anger, and depression.

Carleton College Weitz Cinema
320 Third St. East, Northfield

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.
Northfield Hospital + Clinics introduces a free class to help individuals understand Advance Care Planning and get a start on their own plan.
Advance Care Planning is the process of thinking about and communicating your health care wishes, in case illness or injury prevents you from decision-making.
Plans are moving forward to expand both the Northfield Clinic and the Birth Center in 2019. The Northfield Clinic has outgrown its space, with new providers and more patients for family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine and specialty care. We need more space for these growing services, and any new services.The Birth Center now welcomes about 550 babies a year. The current space would be great if babies came on a steady schedule two or three at a time – but babies come when they’re ready, and more space will let us accommodate more births at the same time.
Dr. Kraushaar loves the laughter and curiosity of kids. She’s a pediatric specialist who cares for children and adolescents in the Northfield Clinic, starting August 7.
“I enjoy working with families to provide the best possible care for their children during all the stages of growth and development,” Dr. Kraushaar says. “The best part of my job is working with children. There is always laughter and curiosity.”
It’s a return to Northfield for Dr. Kraushaar, who is a graduate of St. Olaf College.
Northfield Hospital + Clinics honored 101 employees – with a combined 1,134 years of service – at its annual Length of Service Awards.
Each year, NH+C celebrates staff anniversaries for those hitting a five-year milestone – from five years (40 employees) to 35 and 40 years (one employee each).
