Upcoming Events & Capacity-building Activities

The next Alaska Wellness Coalition Virtual Coffee Klatch is on Thursday, August 27! 

It’s the last one of the summer! We’ll be meeting from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

The agenda is always open, if folks have particular questions they want to ask! 

Last time discussion focused on providing comments for the YRBS. 

On Thursday we’ll check in on the comment period for the BRFSS and Healthy Alaskans 2030. Let us know what your thoughts are! 

We’ll also hear about Ketchikan Wellness Coalition’s work with a provider resource database project and talk a bit more about advocacy. 

To obtain Zoom meeting ID, or more information, please email Jason Ortiz at give@unitedwaymatsu.org.

See you on Thursday!
