About AK ACE-CH 

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Climate Change and Health Initiative recently awarded four sites funding as a first step in establishing the Alliance for Community Engagement on Climate and Health (ACE-CH). NIEHS plays a lead role in the cross-cutting NIH Climate Change and Health Initiative with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) serving as the ACE-CH administrative home.

Our site, at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will focus on indigenous knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about climate change and its effects on health and well-being in Alaska. The site will develop and test strategies to assess risk and resilience factors in rural Alaskan Native communities in highly impacted regions of the state.
