Observed every year in April, National Donate Life Month helps raise awareness about donation, encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors, and to honor those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.
Did you know that more than 100,000 people are waiting for lifesaving organ transplants? Your choice to become a donor can help save the lives of up to eight people waiting for an organ transplant.
Ways to participate in Donate Life Month:
- Register your decision to be a donor.
- Tell your family and friends about your decision to Donate Life.
- Visit DonateLife.net to discover ways you can be a champion of the cause.
- Ask others to learn more and register.
You can register online at RegisterMe.org.
We wish you a Happy National Donate Life Month. Thank you for your efforts in promoting organ, eye and tissue donation and the importance of registering your decision!
In partnership with Coal Country Community Health Center and Knife River Care Center, we offer an onsite practical nursing program through Bismarck State College. The program allows individuals in surrounding communities to pursue a nursing career through non?traditional means and eliminates the need to travel to do so.

People living with Parkinson Disease or other neurological conditions often move differently, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. They may have trouble getting around, getting dressed, and with other daily activities. A new therapy offered at SMC can help patients with PD use their body more normally and slow symptom progression. Lisa Fletcher, PT, DPT, recently went through LSVT BIG training to become an LSVT BIG Certified Clinician.
