look their best.

Hutchinson Health recently added Dr. James Kong to its team of medical professionals seeking to improve the health and well-being of its members, patients, and community.

Kong is a plastic surgeon with Park Nicollet Health Services, and became connected with Hutchinson Health through its partnership with HealthPartners.

He studied at the Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, OH, and is board-certified in general surgery, surgical critical care, and plastic surgery.

“I enjoy all aspects of plastic surgery, and find reconstructive surgery particularly challenging and rewarding,” shared Kong. “It brings me joy to help my patients improve their quality of life through competent and compassionate care.”

Some of Kong’s professional interests include breast reconstruction, augmentation, lift, and reduction; gender affirmation top surgery; eyelid surgery; neck and face lifts; cancer reconstruction; and body contouring, such as after significant weight loss.

“I want all of my patients to be well-informed of their surgical and nonsurgical options in order to make the best decisions together to achieve their desired results,” Kong stated.

Minnesota marathon runner Dick Beardsley has faced death multiple times, yet retains a positive outlook on life. He will be sharing his story with the DC community Wednesday, Feb. 6 at the Performing Arts Center.

DASSEL, COKATO, MN – The Dassel-Cokato Bounce Back Project is having a community kick off event Wednesday, Feb. 6, with a free presentation by Minnesota marathoner Dick Beardsley. The event will start at 6:30 p.m., and will take place in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Dassel-Cokato High School.

Beardsley is well-known for his abilities as an athlete, but he has also faced and overcome some of life’s most difficult and tragic challenges, while maintaining a favorable attitude — even after facing death multiple times.

“I am looking forward to hearing about Dick’s story, and learning about what he does to remain positive when faced with life’s challenges,” stated DC Bounce Back project member Brenda Christensen. “January is a time to start fresh. Making changes to improve our happiness and connect with others is a great way to start.”

“Dick Beardsley is an inspiration,” added fellow member Annette Bohnsack. “This will be a story of tragedy, victory, and hope. Adversity is something we can all relate to. Hearing someone’s story of adversity gives us courage to own and share our stories.”

Beardsley’s presentation is said to be suitable for families with children ages 11 and older. Free childcare will be provided for youth 10 years old and younger from 6:20 to 8 p.m. in the east gym by the PAC.

The evening will include a performance by magician and comedian, “The Great Brodini,” who is being sponsored by the Cokato Library and Minnesota Legacy Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

Pre-registration must be done beforehand through the DC Community Education office, (320)-286-4120.

Originally, the event was scheduled for Jan. 30, but was postponed due to the weather.
