As you and your family enjoy summer activities, keep in mind that now is a good time to make sure your children are up-to-date with their immunizations, physicals, dental, vision, and hearing checks.
For the past 25 years, SCF has provided home visiting services for pregnant women and their families. Originally aiming to improve the post-neonatal infant mortality rate of Alaska Native infants, the program has evolved to focus on improving pregnancy outcomes, children’s health outcomes, family wellness, and children’s readiness for school.
One of Southcentral Foundation’s objectives is to increase the number of Alaska Native employees in all job categories. Through partnerships with accredited schools, SCF has increased the number of programs available and expanded existing employee education opportunities.
