Alaska Center for Rural Health and Health Workforce

The Alaska Center for Rural Health & Health Workforce (ACRH-HW) is committed to strengthening and diversifying Alaska’s health workforce, especially in rural communities and underserved populations. The Center is composed of a variety of programs, most notably the Alaska Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) which is composed of six regional community based centers throughout the state. As part of the University of Alaska Anchorage's role as the state's health campus, the Center supports health program planning, community partnership, diversity, inclusion and intercampus collaboration. The Center provides the framework of statewide community partnerships to support the full pipeline of health workforce development from career exploration to health program training to continuing education.

    The Alaska Victimization Survey (AVS) released a new report about the health of women who have experienced Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). Physical violence is a part of IPV, but it also includes things like controlling behaviors, threats of harm, and inflicting harm against people and things an intimate partner cares about. Dr. Ingrid Johnson with AVS told the Alaska Beacon these sorts of behaviors can have a lasting impact.
