The Jamestown Community Foundation has awarded a $1,995 grant to the Essentia Health Clinic of Jamestown. The grant will allow for the purchase of two digital otoscopes for immediate use in the clinic setting.

The digital otoscope is a tool that shines a beam of light to help visualize and examine the condition of the ear canal and eardrum. It allows for better visualization of the tympanic membrane, gives the ability to take photos and provides more accurate and timely diagnoses. It will be used in the general clinic setting and will assist family practice professionals in providing a more thorough initial check-up, especially for children with painful earaches.

The Jamestown Community Foundation can be reached for information about the organization or its grant applications/guidelines by going online to or by contacting Barb Lang at 701-320-4570. Donations can be mailed to the Jamestown Community Foundation, P.O. Box 2004, Jamestown, ND 58402.
