Sitka Health Summit Planning Day October 9

September 30 2015

SITKA – SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) is encouraging Sitkans to participate in the Sitka Health Summit Planning Day on Friday. October 9, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm at UAS.

The Sitka Health Summit (SHS) is a partnership between multiple, health-related organizations in Sitka, including SEARHC. On October 9, SHS will choose which projects to work on as a community that improve the health of Sitkans. For the first time, up to $20,000 will be awarded to selected projects.

This planning day is a chance to connect with neighbors and community leaders, share your vision for a healthier Sitka, and celebrate the journey toward a better quality of life for all Sitkans through citizen-centered health improvement. It is an opportunity for anyone that lives in the community to work collaboratively with a diverse group of Sitkans and have their voices heard.

A delicious, locally-sourced lunch will be served, along with door prizes and lots of chances to celebrate our city with local food and health improvement fun!

All Sitka community members are invited. Those that wish to attend may register by contacting Zack Desmond at 747-4600 or
