Alaska Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Webinar Series

The Section offers a free webinar series about public health projects and partnerships in Alaska.

The Section of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion is at work to improve the health of Alaskans. Our projects cover many areas, from tracking data so we know which chronic diseases are shortening lives to getting out into the community. We work with providers to promote early diagnosis, support physical activity events for kids at Alaska schools, and teach classes to help those with diabetes manage their disease.

We work on preventing and reducing tobacco use and obesity – two of the leading public health threats facing Alaskans today. We focus on the prevention, treatment, and management of diabetes, heart disease and strokes, and cancer. We strive to prevent injuries for all Alaskans.

We have started a webinar series that shows what we and our partners are doing. The webinars are free and about 20 minutes each, with an additional 10 minutes for questions. They will air live the third Tuesday of every other month at 1 p.m. To register for and watch live webinars, go to the link under each topic (each webinar has a separate registration page). As webinars are completed, the video and presentation will be posted here, and future webinars will be promoted.
