To determine whether methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) USA300 commonly caused infections among Alaska Natives, we examined clinical MRSA isolates from the Alaska Native Medical Center, Anchorage, during 2000-2006. Among Anchorage-region residents, USA300 was a minor constituent among MRSA isolates in 2000-2003 (11/68, 16%); by 2006, USA300 was the exclusive genotype identified (10/10).
Southeast Alaska is the northern terminus of the Inside Passage, a protected waterway of convoluted passages between islands and fjords, beginning in Puget Sound in Washington state. This was an important travel corridor for Tlingit and Haida Native peoples, as well as gold-rush era steamships. In modern times it is an important route for Alaska Marine Highway ferries as well as cruise ships. Southeast Alaska has a land area of 35,138 square miles (91,010 km2)[citation needed] comprising seven entire boroughs and two census areas, in addition to the portion of the Yakutat Borough lying east of 141° West longitude. Although it has only 6.14 percent of Alaskas land area, it is larger than the state of Maine, and almost as large as the state of Indiana. The Southeast Alaskan coast is roughly as long as the west coast of Canada. The 2010 census population of Southeast was 71,616 inhabitants, about 45 percent of whom were concentrated in the city of Juneau.. ...
The first HPV vaccines licensed targeted two HPV types responsible for most cervical cancers. A 9-valent vaccine (9vHPV), targeting 5 additional types, was introduced in 2016 and is currently the only HPV vaccine available in the United States. Previous studies demonstrated high rates of HPV infection in Alaska Native (AN) women. We sought to measure prevalence of high risk HPV types in AN women undergoing colposcopy and to determine those preventable by vaccination. For this cross-sectional study, we recruited women who were undergoing colposcopy for clinical indications at Alaska Native Medical Center to obtain cervical brush biopsy samples. Specimens were shipped to Atlanta, Georgia for DNA extraction, HPV detection, and typing using L1 PCR with type-specific hybridization to detect 37 HPV types. Four hundred eighty eight specimens from 489 women were tested. At least one HPV type was found in 458 (94%) specimens. Of 458 participants who were HPV positive, 332 (72%) had two or more types.

CCHRC has used spray polyurethane foam insulation to build affordable demonstration homes in rural Alaska since 2009. While spray foam has a high insulation value and competitive shipping cost, it requires skill to install and any errors can result in a drastic drop in energy efficiency of the building. This project will allow CCHRC to evaluate some of the existing homes in rural Alaska for moisture infiltration, including Quinhagak and Bethel. CCHRC will also evaluate additional insulation materials and wall designs that could be developed for new homes in rural Alaska. The project will result in detail drawings of new envelope options and a 4 page report to share with rural communities and other stakeholders. ...

Southeast Alaska has more residents - and more jobs - than ever.. Download Audio. Thats according to a report released Tuesday during the Southeast Conferences annual meeting in Sitka.. Meilani Schijvens of Juneau-based Sheinberg Associates assembled the report, called Southeast Alaska by the Numbers.. She says Southeast has finally come back from the 1990s timber-industry crash. Its also largely recovered from the more recent global economic recession.. "Nearly every single economic indicator in the region is up and continuing to rise," Schijvens said. "[Southeast] is now in a cycle of growth and is stronger than ever.. The report says the region added 2,800 residents from 2010 to 2012, the period studied. The total population hit almost 75,000, topping the previous record, a little below 74,000, set a decade and a half ago.. Schijvens says Juneau grew the most. Ketchikan, Sitka and Haines attracted many of the other new residents.. "The largest group moving here are the 20-somethings," ...

Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infections are common in southwestern Alaska. Outbreak strains have been shown to carry the genes for Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL). To determine if carriage of PVL-positive CA-MRSA increased the risk for subsequent soft tissue infection, we conducted a retrospective cohort study by reviewing the medical records of 316 persons for 3.6 years after their participation in a MRSA nasal colonization survey. Demographic, nasal carriage, and antimicrobial drug use data were analyzed for association with skin infection risk. Skin infections were more likely to develop in MRSA carriers than in methicillin-susceptible S. aureus carriers or noncarriers of S. aureus during the first follow-up year, but not in subsequent years. Repeated skin infections were more common among MRSA carriers. In an area where PVL-containing MRSA is prevalent, skin infection risk was increased among MRSA nasal carriers compared with methicillin-susceptible S.

The State of Alaska Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic was assumed by Southcentral Foundation in October 2016. While the staffing of the clinic stays continuous, there have been improvements which include an increased number of clinics, additional hours for clinics, and more comprehensive evaluations that allow providers to get to know each child individually.. A new website was developed and contains information not only on the condition, but also specific pages geared toward parents and providers, along with a team bio page. In the future, the dental department hopes to provide additional resources for out-of-town guests to help make travel easier.. The clinic is open to all Alaska residents, and the team is composed of members from SCF, ANTHC, and the community. One of the leading members is Dr. Daniel Suver, a craniofacial plastic surgeon who comes with a remarkable educational and practical background. An Alaska resident since 2012, Dr. Suver has a particular interest in pediatric plastic surgery, ...
Basic income is a regular unconditional cash grant paid to all citizens without any means test or work requirement. Its often dismissed as a utopian idea.. However, a basic income, or something very close to it, exists today in Alaska. Its called the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) or sometimes "the Alaska Dividend.". The PFD has been paying annual dividends to Alaskans since 1982 with no conditions except citizenship, residency, and the willingness to fill out a form. After following the Alaska Dividend since 1999, and I want to share six lessons that supporters of progressive economic policy should learn from what I call "the Alaska model," but first some basic background.. In 1956, Alaska ratified a constitution recognizing joint ownership of unoccupied land and natural resources. In 1967, North Americas largest oil reserve was discovered in state owned areas on Alaskas North Slope. In 1976, a state referendum created the Alaska Permanent Fund (APF), a portfolio of diversified assets, into ...
Anchorage: ACE Air Cargo flew an injured seal pup 800 miles from Dutch Harbor to Anchorage for treatment at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward.. Dutch Harbor residents found the four- to five-week old pup on a beach early May 19 and watched her all day to keep local dogs and predators away.. Reid Brewer, a Dutch Harbor-based University of Alaska Fairbanks Marine Animal Program biologist, examined the pup and feared she wouldn t survive the night.. He called ACE, and ACE team member Lia Porras helped him load the pup into a portable dog kennel for shipment to Anchorage.. An Alaska SeaLife Center technician met ACE Flight 65 in Anchorage to pick up the pup, assess her condition and start hydrating her immediately. The examination showed that the pup s body temperature was normal, which was crucial for recovery.. "I credit ACE s staff completely for her temperature because they kept the plane warm enough for the entire flight," said Tim Lebling, Alaska SeaLife Center stranding ...
Bristol Bay in southwest Alaska supports the worlds greatest wild salmon fishery. And now scientists have a new understanding why: water temperature and stream flow. Variation in the temperature and flow of streams is key to supporting not just Bristol Bays prolific salmon populations, but also the areas immense wildlife diversity from bears to birds to plants, according to new research presented this week at the Ecological Society of America meetings in Portland, Oregon. Working in the Wood River watershed of Southwest Alaska, scientists found that the diversity of stream conditions results in salmon that spawn at different times throughout the season, thereby extending the time that predators and scavengers can feast on this important food supply. As the lead author of the research explains, "Animals like coastal brown bears and Glaucus-winged gulls gorge themselves at one stream for a few weeks and then just move to another stream that might have water temperatures a few degrees warmer and ...

Commercial fishermen and tribal leaders from Southeast Alaska are in Washington, D.C, this week. Theyre there to press for U.S. State Department action to protect their regions copius wild salmon runs, thriving tourism industry, and cultural resources from large-scale mine projects planned for neighboring British Columbia. Southeast Alaska is home to the lush, 17-million-acres Tongass National Forest.. Five big B.C. mines are proposed for development upstream from Southeast Alaska in watersheds that produce healthy and lucrative salmon runs. The group in D.C., carrying a letter signed by 40 organizations, tribes and individuals, says safeguards are currently lacking to ensure that Canadian mine development doesnt harm one of Southeast Alaskas main economic engines -- salmon.. The mine projects are in a very bad location from a fishing standpoint. They sit in the headwaters of the Taku, Unuk and Stikine Rivers. These international rivers support important commercial, sport, and customary and ...
More than 700 000 American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children younger than 19 years old live in the United States.1 These AI/AN children experience higher rates of morbidity and mortality from unintentional injuries than do other US children. The 881 injury deaths to AI children between 1992 and 1994 translate to an overall rate of 52.3 deaths per 100 000 children per year. This rate is almost twice the US rate of 28.3 per 100 000 children for all races (1993).2 Rates of injury deaths are high for rural and urban AI/AN populations.3. Although rates of injury death have dropped considerably during the past 25 years, they remain disproportionately high among AI/AN children for the most common causes of injury. Fatality rates for motor vehicle occupant injuries are 3 times higher for AI/AN children than for white and black children.1 Pedestrian-motor vehicle collision deaths are almost 4 times that for all US races combined, and drowning, the second leading cause of injury death, occurs at ...
Lithofacies associations and successions of the Jura-Cretaceous Gravina belt on Admiralty, Douglas, and northern Kupreanof Islands (southeast Alaska) are dominated by deep-marine slope, inner-fan, and middle-fan depositional environments. Non-channelized outer-fan facies are exposed over broad areas on eastern Kupreanof and Mitkof Islands. Four turbidite systems are recognized: a Late Jurassic slope wedge (southeastern Admiralty Island), a Cretaceous, elongate submarine fan system (Admiralty Island to Kupreanof and Mitkof Islands), and smaller-scale system(s), ?entirely of Cretaceous age (Seymour Canal to Douglas Island). Sandstones of the Seymour Canal Formation (Gravina belt) exhibit framework modes typical of detritus shed from undissected arc sources. Sandstones of channelized conglomeratic facies are slightly enriched in quartz, sedimentary, metasedimentary, and plutonic detritus relative to thin-bedded turbidite sandstones; they record local unroofing of the underlying Alexander terrane, ...

Marc Korn went North to Alaska. The 56-year-old former owner of Fairchild Manor in Lewiston, Marc Irwin Korn, is alive and well and working as a consultant in Alaska. Readers may recall that Korn advertised on the back cover of the Niagara Falls Reporter for about three months in 2011. Since we had extended him credit for the advertising, we hardly expected that, upon our gentle urging for payment, Korn would present us with bogus checks. But writing bad checks is almost a disease with the soft spoken, weasel of a man with a badly-dyed, misshapen hair transplant. A few months ago, C Care Services, a company that offers in-home non-medical care services, hired Korn, then a consultant for Global Resources in Northbrook, Ill., to come to Anchorage, Alaska, to help them out for a reported $250 per hour. Several people, after filing complaints against Korn with various agencies in Alaska, contacted the Reporter. They allege that Korn devised a plan to help the company defraud Alaska Medicaid. The ...

My name is Tiko Crofoot. My parents, my sister, and I have been Alaska residents for many years now. I am active duty military, currently stationed in Virginia, and am getting ready for my fifth deployment to CENTCOM as a U.S. Navy SEAL. For the past two years, I was denied my Permanent Fund Dividend because of a clause stating that an absence from the state of 10 years, even if due to military requirements and even if you have maintained residency the entire time, negates eligibility. I have gone back to Alaska every year since being in the military, and have spent the requisite amount of time there to qualify for the PFD and to retain my residency. I have an Alaska drivers license, vote in all Alaska elections, have it listed as my home of record for the military and plan to retire there once my military service is complete.

The needs of Urban American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations are often not well understood. In order to inform programs and services, the Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UIC-SL), in cooperation with researchers from the University of Utah, undertook a community needs assessment of AI/AN living along Utahs Wasatch Front. A 60-item questionnaire was developed to capture information about health status, services used, unmet needs, and common sources of information about AI/AN community events and activities. Study participants (n?=?336) were a convenience sample. Descriptive statistics, including mean, standard deviation, percentage, and 95% confidence intervals, were calculated. The most common health provider diagnosed medical conditions included hypertension, obesity, and diabetes. The prevalence of violence, substance abuse, and mental health conditions were also high among study participants and their families. Compared to the general Utah population, study participants experienced ...

Purpose: To describe and compare the impact of universal infant immunization with 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7) on invasive Streptococcus pneumoniae infection, nasopharyngeal carriage, and antibiotic resistance in Alaskan Native and non-Native children and adults. Methods: The medical literature concerning the epidemiology of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) and the effects of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine on the incidence, nasopharyngeal carriage, and antibiotic resistance of S pneumoniae was reviewed with special emphasis on the effects in the Alaska Native population. Results: Alaska Native children experienced the highest incidence of IPD in the United States. The greatest difference in IPD was among children younger than 2 years for whom the annualized rate in Alaskan Native children (450/100,000 per year) was 3 times higher than for non-Native Alaskan children younger than 2 years who had rates similar to the overall US population. In the first 3 years after beginning routine
Health care accessibility for rural Alaskans with disabilities is the topic of a focus group tonight in Nome.. Amanda Cooper is the Alaska Health and Disability Program Manager and is leading the sessions, focusing on quality of life.. She said, "Adults Alaskans with disabilities experience disparities in nearly every core health area. For example," Cooper explains, "Alaskans with disabilities have a higher prevalence rate of obesity, a higher rate of tobacco use, a higher rate of inactivity, and a higher rate of diabetes.". Cooper said Alaskans with disabilities feel health care services are limited to them, and they also show a lack of preventative screenings like pap smears and mammograms.. But this information comes from data collected in urban areas-Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley. The Alaska Health and Disability Program is seeking a more state-wide perspective to close the gaps in health disparities for individuals with disabilities.. Now they are coming to rural places like Nome to hold ...
