   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:y

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fir. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

PDH holds semi-annual low-cost health screening

Feather Publishing

The PDH screening begins Monday, May 5, from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. and runs through Thursday, May 8, in the North Fork Family Medicine Building on Valley View Road behind the hospital.

PDH will provide a comprehensive blood screening test for $50, bone density tests for $50 and prostate cancer screening tests for $15. In addition, a free diabetes screening test (A1C) is available.

The A1C test can identify prediabetes by measuring average blood glucose for the past two to three months. It is fast and convenient, say staffers, “just a little finger-stick,” and the result is available in about five minutes.

No appointment is necessary; however, PDH suggests patients attend according to the first initial of their last name as follows.

Monday, May 5, A – F

Tuesday, May 6, G – M

Wednesday, May 7, N – S

Friday, May 8, T – Z

Do not eat for 12 hours prior to the blood draw. Continue normal intake of water and medications.

More information about the spring low-cost health screening is available at 283-5640.
