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. Since its inception over 25 years ago, ICHS health research has evolved into various focuses and is looking forward to working to improve the health of northern populations for another 25 years.
