A Healthy Fairbanks 2020 project team was formed in June 2014 to develop an action agenda to address the Fairbanks North Star Borough’s top health concerns. To uncover those concerns we are conducting a series of community forums to discuss the health of our community. In addition to the community forums, residents of the Borough will be able to provide feedback via this survey. TAKE SURVEY HERE

YOUR OPINION IS IMPORTANT TO US!
The purpose of the survey is to get your opinion about health issues that are important in our community. The Healthy Fairbanks 2020 project team will use the results of this survey and other information to develop an action agenda to identify and address our most critical health issues. Please complete only ONE survey per person. Your survey responses are COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS and the survey should take only about 5-10 minutes of your time.
If you have questions, please contact the Fairbanks Hospital Foundation at (907) 458-5550. Thank you for your participation!
Will Mayo, Executive Director of Tribal Government and Client Development, Jerry Isaac, former TCC President, and Bob Sattler, TCC Archaeologist, participated with University personnel, press, and other contributors held an audioconference on November 10th regarding the Upward Sun River Discovery.
Xaasaa Na’ (the Upward Sun River Discovery) is a recent discovery, in routes between Fairbanks and Delta Junction, which includes the remains of two Ice Age infants, buried more than 11,000 years ago at a site in Alaska, representing the youngest human remains ever found in the North American Arctic. The site and its artifacts provide new insights into funeral practices and other aspects of life among people who inhabited the area thousands of years ago, according to Ben Potter, a researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the paper’s lead author.
A recently discovered fault line near Minto has created several large earthquakes here in Interior Alaska and has the potential to create even larger ones. We want to ensure that everyone is prepared in the event of a large earthquake and knows what precautionary measures to take.
