Sitka to host health summit

Posted: Thursday, September 23, 2010

The Sitka Health Summit "Working Together for a Healthier Sitka," is scheduled for Oct. 4-5, at Harrigan Centennial Hall.

There are two main community events during the Sitka Health Summit - the Sitka Community Dessert and Awards Ceremony Oct. 4, and the Planning Day: Real Ideas Into Action Oct. 5.

Doors open at 6 p.m. on Oct. 4, with the program starting at 6:30 p.m. The event features a selection of free local and organic desserts provided by Sitka Spuce Catering for the first 200 people. The keynote presentation will be delivered by Dr. Julien Naylor, an internal medicine/diabetes specialist at SEARHC Mount Edgecumbe Hospital who will speak about the importance of creating a healthy community in Sitka and how to help people move toward a more healthful life. Following the presentation will be an awards ceremony honoring community wellness champions. Donations will be accepted for the Sitka Health Summit's new Health Initiatives Fund.

The Oct. 5 program runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will allow Sitka residents to set the community's health and wellness goals for 2010-11. This year's top goals and priorities will receive seed money from the new Health Initiatives Fund.
