Southcentral Foundation congratulates Dr. Matt Hirschfeld on receiving The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation’s Distinguished Provider Award!
The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation, the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium’s charitable arm, hosted the 12th Annual Raven’s Ball in March. One of the annual Raven’s Ball highlights is the presentation of the Luminary Awards, which recognize individuals for their dedication and outstanding contribution to the Alaska Tribal Health System and community. The Distinguished Provider award recognizes a health care provider whose dedication has made a difference in the lives of the patients they care for while in the Alaska Tribal Health System.
“Matt is so deserving of this recognition,” said Katherine Gottlieb SCF President/CEO. “ He has served the Alaska Native community with humble wisdom as a leader and practitioner.”
Sometimes the work of one individual can change the lives of thousands of people; in the case of Dr. Matt Hirschfeld, thousands might be an understatement. Dr. Hirschfeld’s role as the Alaska Native Medical Center Maternal Child Health Service Line Director, in collaboration with many others, has helped dramatically improve the span, quality, and quantity of programs and services for children and their families across Alaska.
As both a pediatrician and a member of the ANMC leadership team for the last 13 years, Dr. Hirschfeld has been part of a movement across the state that is dedicated to building systems and programs that improve the health and wellness of Alaskan children and families. Thank you, Dr. Hirschfeld for your unwavering commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of Alaska Native people throughout the state.
