January - National Observance Event

National Mentoring Month

January is National Mentoring Month, a special time to recognize and express gratitude to mentors that have direct and lasting effect on the lives of youth they work with.  Children will thrive when they receive guidance, hope, and love from an adult mentor.  A trusting and optimistic relationship with parents/guardians, elders and community volunteers can have a profound effect on the success of a child’s life, including personal growth and development, avoidance of risky behaviors, and increased educational success.

The Alaska Blanket Exercise Reconciliation through Education and Understanding

January 8, 2020

The Alaska Blanket Exercise program is a participatory history lesson – developed in collaboration with Alaska Native Elders, knowledge keepers and educators – that fosters truth, understanding, respect and reconciliation among Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.

Through an experiential learning activity, participants will walk on blankets representing the land and into the role of Alaska Native people by reading scrolls and carrying cards which ultimately determine their outcome as they literally ‘walk’ through situations that include pre-contact, colonization and resistance. This exercise was adapted from a best practice exercise use by indigenous people in Canada.

January 8, 2020

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of Alaska Native history, since time immemorial.
  • Participants will develop an understanding of the impacts of intergenerational trauma on Alaska Native people.
  • Participants will develop awareness of and gain an understanding of what they can do in their own lives and communities to break cycles of intergenerational trauma.

37th Annual Alaska Health Summit Creating Healthy Alaskans:  For Science, For Action, For Equity!

January 21-23, 2020

The Alaska Public Health Association (ALPHA) recognizes that our state is home to a rich multi-cultural tapestry of traditions and includes some of the most culturally diverse zip codes in the country. We know, too, that people often have unique and valuable insight into the nature of the challenges they face and they should be actively engaged in the development of potential solutions.

We have a full schedule with outstanding speakers who will engage us in thinking about some of the most critical issues affecting public health in Alaska today. With keynote and workshop sessions you will have networking opportunities and come away inspired for your own work and partnerships. We encourage you to explore the many pre- and post- Summit offerings, too.
