On May 22, the new and expanded Children’s Dental Clinic in the SEARHC dental building in Juneau will begin seeing patients. The expansion has been in the planning stages since 2014 and was the logical next step in providing all children in the community, many of whom are recipients of Denali Kid Care, with access to dental care. With more space and more dentists, SEARHC can care for the oral health of more children in Juneau. Read more

JUNEAU – For safety’s sake, gauges on all pressure canners should be tested at least once a year to ensure proper pressure during the canning process. Jars not cooked at the recommended pressure may allow bacteria called Clostridium botulinum to survive and grow inside a sealed jar of food producing a poisonous toxin. Even a small taste of food containing this toxin can be fatal. One way to prevent food spoilage is to make certain that the gauge of the pressure canner is accurate when home canning.
