Earlier this month, ANHB leadership participated in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for their newly expanded hospital. At the event, ANHB received a recognition award for ANHB’s collective partnership and advocacy. We commend YKHC for their collaborative effort with many partners in bringing their vision to fruition. This project emphasizes the significance of the Alaska Tribal Health System and how through collaboration we can better ensure the health and well-being of our Tribal Citizens. When touring the facility it was evident how self-determination and self-governance emphasized the importance of incorporating the YK Region’s culture and values into the delivery of healthcare services.
