Pre & Post Summit Offerings:
Hosted by Alaska Division of Public Health, Michael Dickey,
The workshop on water, climate, and health will focus on planning an evaluation of Alaskan rural water and sanitation infrastructure considered “at risk” from climate change. This will include planning for: an assets inventory of pertinent water and sanitation infrastructure; an identification of key vulnerability points; and an assessment of the cost of system decline or failure. Workshop participants will also discuss the use of these data to anticipate potential associated human health impacts and response strategies.
Hosted by US Arctic Research Commission, CDC, Cheryl Rosa,

Wednesday Jan 18th 7 pm – 8:30 pm – “Generation Found”
From the creators of the groundbreaking film, THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE, comes GENERATION FOUND, a powerful story about one community coming together to ignite a youth addiction recovery revolution in their hometown. Devastated by an epidemic of addiction, Houston faced the reality of burying and locking up its young people at an alarming rate. GENERATION FOUND takes an unprecedented and intimate look at how a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups, and collegiate recovery programs can exist in concert to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the “War on Drugs.”
