Solving the Alaska health care puzzle
For many Alaskans, getting reliable access to quality health care is a dream, not reality. What can be done to change that?
One piece of the puzzle: Helping students in health care programs go on to be successful professionals across our state. On Alaska Public Media's "Talk of Alaska" radio show, we hear from Gloria Burnett on the innovative ways the College of Health is preparing future health care professionals in a range of fields, from clinical practice to population health. Burnett is director of the college's Alaska Center for Rural Health and Health Workforce, which works closely with our academic program and health care employers to help connect students with the careers they're passionate about.
