In the event of an emergency, would you know what to do to help your neighbors?

With course titles like "Integrated Care Condolence Team Fundamentals" and "Casework Workshop: Recovery Best Practices," Registered Nurses, Physicians Assistants & Licensed Mental Health Practitioners in particular are encouraged to attend.  

However, as many Alaskans end up taking on multiple functions if they live in rural communities, everyone interested is invited, and can phone 646-5401 for registration details or questions, and can also check out the website to register:  pacificdivision.weebly.com/alaska-disaster-leadership-institute---may-11-14-anchorage-ak.html

The workshops span four days starting Thursday evening May 11th, and are intended to increase leadership capacity for disaster response in Alaska.
