Prince of Wales Health Network Names New Network Manager

CRAIG, August 24, 2017 – The Prince of Wales Health Network (POWHN) is pleased to welcome Ms. Heidi Young as its new Network Manager.

Heidi served as the POWHN Program Co-Coordinator for the past three years, which allows her to hit the ground running in her new role at the Network. Heidi has strong collaboration skills and works well with all in the Prince of Wales Health Network. The Network includes the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC), PeaceHealth, Craig Public Health Nursing, Community Connections, Whale Tail Pharmacy, and Island Care Services.

Colleen Watson, Craig Public Health Nurse, relates, “We are looking forward to Heidi’s continuation at the health network in her new capacity. Heidi is a great fit with her positive attitude, enthusiasm, and expertise!”

Heidi has a passion for helping others in her community. As the owner of Island Care Services, she has been instrumental in helping individuals on POW navigate their healthcare needs. Before starting her own business, Heidi spent several years at Community Connections in Craig, facilitating services, designing programs, and advocating for the elderly and individuals with disabilities.

Ms. Young said, “I am excited to continue the work of the POWHN and to have a positive impact on the health of rural Alaskans.”

The Prince of Wales Health Network has been bringing healthcare providers and community members together since 2008. POWHN’s current grant focuses on increasing access to prevention activities and building resiliency in youth.

Tribal President of the Organized Village of Kasaan and SEARHC Board member, Frederick Olsen Jr. said, “I am excited to have Heidi on board as the new Network Manager. Her advocacy for the POWHN will be instrumental in the success of the grant’s goals and in building a solid foundation for positive and long-lasting impact on the youth in our communities.”

The POWHN looks forward to her leadership and advocacy for the communities on Prince of Wales.

The Network is always looking for volunteers who want to make a difference in their community. Those interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities with POWHN should contact Heidi at or (907) 254-2904.
