Leaders in Improving the Health of Northern Populations
The Institute for Circumpolar Health Studies was created by the Alaska State Legislature in 1988 (AS 14.40.088) to develop new solutions to health problems in Alaska and the north. The Institute provides support and coordination for health research, information, and training. Working closely with faculty throughout the University of Alaska system, ICHS provides technical assistance and support to increase the capacity within the state to address the health needs of all Alaskans. ICHS also encourages student involvement through academic course work, internships, and research assistantships.
The ICHS Team would like to thank our health and social services community partners who participated in the ICHS Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) meeting at the Alaska Public Health Association (ALPHA) Annual Health Summit held on January 14, 15, and 16, 2013.
Also, thank you to everyone who attended our ALPHA breakout sessions and stopped by the ICHS table!
