The Alaska Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) coalition was formed in 2010. This coalition brought together health care providers, health conscious individuals and organizations to prevent FASD and to help the people affected by this disorder. It was formed as healthcare providers felt the urgency to launch a joint offensive against the rising rates of FASD.
At present, this Alaska FASD partnership has more than 75 members and is headed by a steering committee. This committee consists of individuals and parents who have combated FASD in personal life.
This coalition has helped procure more funds from the state for the purpose of parent navigation services, substance abuse treatment for pregnant women and provision of better amenities to people suffering from FASD.
The Alaska Infectious Disease Program, which aims to control and eventually prevent the outbreak of infectious diseases in this state, works whole heartedly for:
Ascertaining the causes for frequent outbreak of infectious diseases
Discovering the outbreaks in time and taking steps to control them
Providing vaccines to all children and high-risk adults of the state against preventable diseases
Educating the people and health care providers about infectious diseases
Controlling and, in the long run, eradicating tuberculosis
The Alaska Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program, which has been working for eradicating TB form Alaska, aims to check the spread of TB by offering preventive therapy to people diagnosed with TB infection and putting them on an anti-TB therapy. It also provides follow-up and treatment to people who were exposed to TB infection.
In addition to the above, VacTrAK (web based Immunization Information System) has been maintaining computerized records which contain population-based immunization records for all residents of the state which has helped forecast future immunizations and issue reminders for patients which has helped control the outbreak of vaccine preventable diseases.
Nov 17, 2014 -- CPR attempt at airport revives elderly man
A Monday morning at the Juneau International Airport seemed like business as usual except for Sgt. David Wrightson. The local police officer responded to a distress call regarding a man who collapsed due to cardiac arrest. He located the victim in less than a minute and evaluated his condition. He found no pulse, so he immediately administered chest compressions. Paramedics arrived on time to deliver the elderly to the Bartlett Regional Hospital. It was known that he was recovering from a heart surgery, but news about his full recovery was not released yet. Heroes like Wrightson are continually praised for their CPR knowledge and quick thinking skills.
