Jana SchuerchBased in Kiana
Employed by Maniilaq Association
“I was born in Kotzebue and grew up in Kiana where I spent the majority of my life. It’s clear that additional efforts in addressing the prevention of tooth decay in underserved Rural Alaska Communities are needed. As a Dental Health Aide Therapist I have the opportunity to work within a small community, getting patients out of pain, restoring teeth, and working on preventing dental decay. These efforts will ultimately slow the growing tooth decay in our region.
