The county is making free prescription drug discount card available under a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) that offers average savings off22 percent of the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs. The card may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, income, or existing health coverage, and are accepted at county pharmacies. A national network of more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies also will honor the NACo prescription discount yard. "Walsh County is proud to be one of the counties nationwide participating with NACo." said Twila Novak, Walsh County Social Services. " The NACo prescription discount card offers significant savings for the uninsured and underinsured residents of our county, and even though fortunate enough to have prescription coverage can use the card to save money on medications that are not covered by their health plan.

If you do not wear a seat belt while driving, you're breaking the law in North Dakota. Some people claim it's their personal choice whether or not to wear a seat belt. I disagree. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), when used, seat belts reduce the risk a fatal injury to front seat passenger car occupants by 45 percent and 60 percent in pick- ups, SUVs, and minivans. Last year, 83 of the 140 people killed on North Dakota roads were not buckled up. NHTSA estimates that 41 of these lives could have been saved if only they chose to take a few seconds to buckle up. Wearing a seat belt is the easiest and most effective way to survive or reduce serious injury if you're involved in a traffic crash. MOtor vehicle crashes are up in North Dakota due to impaired drivers, distracted drivers, and speeding. Traffic crashes are unpredictable and wearing a seat belt is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones when traveling on the road. May 24-June 6, law enforcement agencies throughout North Dakota will focus on ticketing those who are not wearing a seat belt. They are not doing this to be unfriendly or to generate revenue; they are doing this to save precious lives. Take a few seconds to buckle up. It may save you the cost of a ticket; it may save your life. cancer Gas Cards Available for Prostate, Breast cancer patients in North Dakota The American Cancer Society has $100 gas cards available for prostate cancer patients and breast cancer patients to assist with transportation costs to/from treatment.
