CHI Honors Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the Midst of Pandemic

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, isolating at home and social distancing is encouraged to protect our communities. However, home may not be a safe place for many families experiencing domestic violence, which can impact intimate partners and children. Recognizing domestic violence as a social determinant of health CHI is honoring October 2020 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM).

Proud Member of the ND Colorectal Cancer Roundtable

CHI St. Alexius Health is a proud member of the North Dakota Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, a 2020 80% in Every Community National Achievement Award Honoree. North Dakota designated this week as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Week, as we celebrate the North Dakota Colorectal Cancer Roundtable national award and bring CRC screening back into focus in this new pandemic environment.

Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. when men and women are combined, yet it can often be prevented or detected at an early stage. But there is good news: the number of deaths from colorectal cancer has been dropping in both men and women for several decades. One reason, researchers say, is the use of screening colonoscopies to remove colorectal polyps before they develop into cancers, or find cancers earlier when the disease is easier to treat. Another factor is that treatment for colorectal cancer has improved.
