Carol!! Way to go 🎉

KCHC was recently recognized at the annual NWRPCA Spring Summit held in Anchorage from May 19th to May 21st 2019.
The Summit Award honors someone within NWRPCA membership who has reached a singular level of achievement in a particular area of expertise or service, focusing in 2019 on addressing chronic illness: diabetes and hypertension. This year's Summit Award was given to the team at Kodiak Community Health Center: Dr. Curtis Mortenson, Medical Director; Dr. David Silbergeld, Family Medicine Provider; and Belinda Chambers, Registered Dietician and Diabetes Case Manager. Dr. Mortenson, originally from the Kodiak community himself, has been a mover and a shaker in making a difference in the patient population at Kodiak CHC. He’s truly embodying a patient-centered approach by helping to lead his organization around integration and team-based care. This, in turn, allows for effective diabetes & hypertension interventions. His team of Dr. Silbergeld and Belinda Chambers work together to dive deep into patients with diabetes and hypertension by analyzing and tracking clinical measures, performing routine foot and retinal exams, and engaging in case management and nutritional counseling for a holistic intervention that identifies and addresses barriers, empowering their patients to take control of their diabetes & hypertension. Thank you so much, Dr. Mortenson, Dr. Silbergeld, and Belinda, for your dedication to improving diabetes & hypertension outcomes in your community!

The Northwest Regional Primary Care Association (NWRPCA) is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 membership-driven organization that serves community and migrant health centers (C/MHCs) in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (federal Region X).
