For far too long, Alaska has ranked the highest in the nation in rates of child abuse and sexual assault. This April, thanks to Southcentral Foundation’s Family Wellness Warriors Initiative, hundreds of Alaskans took part in awareness, education, and action in an effort to end the violence.

From June 18 – 22, Southcentral Foundation will host the 8th Annual Nuka System of Care Conference. The conference provides SCF the opportunity to share the successes of our customer-owner driven health care system.

Southcentral Foundation is committed to providing the very best health care to the Alaska Native Community. From state-of-the-art facilities, to the finest integrated care teams, SCF has invested heavily in the Alaska Native Medical Health Campus.

Employees from Southcentral Foundation attended the 30th Annual Quest for Excellence Conference in Baltimore, Maryland.

Jesse Lynn Merculief’s cancer survivor story began at 18 —  with an abnormal pap smear. Jesse contracted HPV. The Center for Disease Control states HPV is so common that, “…nearly all sexually active men and women,” get it in their lifetime; some strains are even asymptomatic. Unfortunately, Jesse was exposed to a cancerous strain and was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

One of the most important services in any health care organization is that of the pharmacy.

In rural Alaska communities, pharmacy services are especially important as approximately 10,000 customer-owners reside in the Rural Anchorage Service Unit.

Your Care, Your Choices, the advanced care planning initiative created by Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium and Southcentral Foundation, was awarded an Indian Health Services Director’s Award for 2017. A team of 39 professionals, with representatives from the medical as well as business side of both ANTHC and SCF, developed this unique program.

Each year, toward the end of February, thousands of Alaskans and visitors from across the globe travel to Anchorage to take part in the Fur Rendezvous winter festival, also known as Fur Rondy.

Children’s Dental Health Month is celebrated across the nation every February with a variety of activities.
