The health center is staffed by public health nurses (PHN I-II and PHN III) and an Office Assistant (OA II).

Public health nursing plays a major role in infectious disease surveillance and investigation. We partner with State of Alaska Epidemiology through local public health nursing case investigations of tuberculosis, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), foodborne illnesses and other reportable diseases such as giardiasis.
Each clinic visit, we also offer individual screenings and referrals for domestic/interpersonal violence, healthy lifestyle, and alcohol use risk.
