HOW IS YOUR LIVER? Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
The University of Manitoba, together with Four Arrows Regional Health Authority and C.W. Wiebe Medical Centre is conducting a study to determine how common and/or severe the condition called ‘non-alcoholic fatty liver disease’ (NAFLD) is in Manitoba, an the long-term outcomes for people who have this condition.
We are inviting community members like yourself to come to the planned community clinic to participate in the study. All members ages 18 years or over from the WINKLER and MORDEN area are invited to participate in the study. You do not have to have this condition to participate. The medical study team will be set up at our clinic on several different days, the next one is Friday, May 24th from 8:30 am – 6 pm (later appointments may be available).
If you are interested in taking part in this study, please contact us at 204.325.4312 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also talk to your doctor or our reception staff.

Check your body for ticks after being outdoors. Conduct a full body check upon return from potentially tick-infested areas, including your own backyard. Use a hand-held or full-length mirror to view all parts of your body. Check these parts of your body and your child’s body for ticks:
- Under the arms
- In and around the ears
- Inside belly button
- Back of the knees
- In and around the hair
- Between the legs
- Around the waist
If you find a tick attached to your skin, there’s no need to panic—the key is to remove the tick as soon as possible. There are several tick removal devices on the market, but a plain set of fine-tipped tweezers work very well. In the absence of tweezers, use paper or cloth to protect the fingers during tick extraction.
How to remove a tick
- Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as possible.
- Pull upward with steady, even pressure. Don’t twist or jerk the tick; this can cause the mouth-parts to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts with tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily with clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal.
- After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol or soap and water.
- Never crush a tick with your fingers. Dispose of a live tick by putting it in alcohol, placing it in a sealed bag/container, wrapping it tightly in tape, or flushing it down the toilet.
If you develop a rash or fever within several weeks of removing a tick, see your doctor. Be sure to tell the doctor about your recent tick bite, when the bite occurred, and where you most likely acquired the tick.
Avoid folklore remedies such as “painting” the tick with nail polish or petroleum jelly, or using heat to make the tick detach from the skin. Your goal is to remove the tick as quickly as possible–not waiting for it to detach.
