Cultural Committee

When designing the layout of the new Tok Clinic, Tanana Chiefs Conference wanted to ensure that the facility was something that was reflective of area by incorporating different cultural elements into the design. To assist in this process, TCC formed a cultural committee comprised of representative experts from surrounding communities to meet with the architects to provide input on the design.

A Promise Kept: Improving Health Care in the Upper Tanana

A draft design of the new clinic.

“Don’t forget about us.”

A simple request from the Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC) Full Board of Directors that echoes in the back of TCC Chief/Chairman Victor Joseph’s mind every time he is making decisions about healthcare expansion in the region. In 2008, Chief Joseph was the Health Services Director when he stood before the Full Board seeking authorization to move forward with the construction of the Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center (CAIHC) in Fairbanks. The Full Board approved the proposal with only three stipulations – 1) Make sure the clinic isn’t designed as a square box, 2) When you expand services make sure you expand in the villages too, and 3) Don’t forget about us.
