There are about 6,500 people in Harvey County that can utilize the Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas program. SHICK is a free service to help those 65 and older with Medicare Part D enrollment.

In many cases, SHICK can identify options that can save you a lot of money on your prescriptions. This past year, participants on average saved nearly $500. We provide the resources so you can make informed decisions, but those decisions remain 100% yours.

There's a lot of places around Harvey County to get help, including two right here at the Courthouse - our Department on Aging and Harvey County K-State Research and Extension. Stop by to learn more or give us a call to find a time to discover the options you have available.

Tuesday, October 15th is Global Handwashing Day!

Handwashing is the most effective way to stop the spread of illness and infection.

Always Wash Your Hands After:
- (and before) handling food.
- using the bathroom or changing diapers.
- sneezing, blowing your nose, or coughing.
- touching a cut or open sore.
- playing outside or with pets.

Here's How:
1. Wet your hands with WARM, running water.
2. Add soap, rub hands together front and back, between the fingers and under nails for about 20 seconds.
3. Rinse. Dry hands with a clean paper towel.
4. Turn off water with used towel(s) before throwing away.
