Update from Sharon Phillips, Tanana Valley Program Director
Sharon Phillips
"The Tanana Valley Program produces Alaska Health Fair events for all communities north of Talkeetna and Glenallen (about 80% of the state land mass, which supports 20% of the residential population base). Our northern volunteers staff a variety of health education and support sections in remote locations and help to put on the best event possible for their specific community or worksite. They should feel proud of their efforts, as they are an immensely important piece of the efforts to help keep the wheels turning smoothly at an Alaska Health Fair event. Their services are invaluable to our local rural and remote communities and the variety of residents that live in these distant parts of the state. There are only two paid individuals at an AHF event, the Program Director and the Lead Phlebotomist (who many times donates her money back to AHF). Please think about that when you arrive at an event with 20 to 40 volunteers doing the best to meet a participant’s needs and then please take time to “thank a volunteer”. 
We also greatly appreciate our office volunteers, who show up at the office in all kinds of weather and support the annual processes that must take place. You might just hear from them during the year. 
The Fall 2015 season includes Nome and Delta Junction are some of the 8 TVP fairs in a 5 week period. This year the GVEA Good Cents Foundation has provided support for our mission to promote statewide health education and preventative screenings and vision of optimal health for all Alaskans, by funding 300 A1C Diabetes blood tests for those in need. They have also supported our outreach to distant communities over recently. 
We are located at 1949 Gillam Way, Suite #414, Fairbanks, Alaska. Have a wonderful Fall!"
Sharon Phillips, Alaska Health Fair Tanana Valley Program Director
