The Alaska Health Aide Program: A Tradition of Helping Ourselves

Philip Nice, M.D., with the assistance of Walter Johnson, M.D., recorded the development of the Community Health Aide Program from the inital system developed by the Russians to present. Drs. Nice and Johnson were both active in the founding of the Community Health Aide system.

This book documents the intensive efforts 25 years ago to develop a common statewide curriculum. It describes the evolution of the program, from the Sanitation Aides and Chemotherapy Aides through the present sophisticated Community Health Aide Program. Any profit accrued from sales will be donated to the Community Health and Aide education program.
