What to ask
the pharmacist

If you have diabetes or just want to learn more about diabetes and medications, join us Thursday, June 13 at 10 a.m. at the Extension office at our monthly diabetes support group meeting, “What to Ask Your Pharmacist?”

Chuck Webster, owner of Webster Drugs in Carrollton will discuss what to ask your pharmacist about medications. Do you really need them? What do they do? What if I cannot afford them? What problems can occur?

Ruth Kingkade, RN, certified diabetes educator with Three Rivers District Health Department will answer questions relating to diabetes. I will provide information on nutrition and a healthy snack. We encourage all interested to attend.

Ovarian cancer
screening trip

Ovarian cancer is a serious disease that can be prevented and when detected early can help women survive.

The survival of Kentucky women whose ovarian cancer was detected by screening is significantly higher than that of women who did not have screening.

The University of Kentucky provides free annual screening to Kentucky Extension Homemaker members and friends through a special research program.

Carroll County currently has 56 women being screened in the University of Kentucky  program, while in the surrounding Northern Kentucky area there are 912 women participating.

Each day, new ways to detect ovarian cancer at an early stage when it is still curable are being developed. 

Carroll County Extension Service is offering its annual trip to the University of Kentucky for free screening on Monday, July 8.

Transportation will be provided for a small fee.

We will depart the Extension office at 10 a.m. and return around 4:30 p.m. We stop for lunch (which is on your own) prior to the screening.

We can take 12 people for screening July 8. If you wish to attend this year, please call the Extension office so we can sign you up.
