March for Science Palmer AK Facebook Page

Kendra Zamzow is an environmental chemist, and after hearing about the idea of independently organized March for Science events happening across the US, thought, "Why not Palmer?"

This was in mid-February, and since then, organizing the event has been a huge part of her life, outside of work, as she points out this is completely on her own time and resources.  

As Heard on Morning Line: Epipen Recalled

Apr 7, 2017

Earlier this week, the Alaska Native Medical Center sent letters to patients with prescriptions for certain EpiPen and EpiPen Jr Auto-Injector models about a voluntary recall by the manufacturer, Mylan. 

The potentially lifesaving device is designed to allow a patient to inject liquid epinephrine into their own leg to help stop the effects of a severe allergic reaction.

Today, March 30th, is the 150th anniversary of the Treaty of Cession, between the US and Russia,  It's the basis of Seward's Day, an official State of Alaska holiday, observed the last Monday in March.  

It seems that some Alaskans, if they are even aware of Seward's Day, may view it as a time to celebrate a shrewd bargain accomplished by a figure in history, others recall choices derided by others that ended up as a success.
