I work for Bristol Bay Area Health Corp

(bbahc.org). It is an IHS facility in southwestern

an area the size of the state of Ohio.

The nearest facility to us is in Anchorage,

to get here, you must fly or can come

by boat (but that would be a long tough trip!).

I work mostly ER

and Walk In clinic, but also do village

travel to remote clinics. I handle prenatal to elder

care and all ages in between.

Frontier medicine is truly challenging but

I work with a great group of primary care providers
