  • Current Edition

    February, 2015 

    Celebrating and preserving the Alaskan way of life is at the heart of our commitment to this community. Whether it's supporting local health associations and the Juneau SEADOGS, or nurturing our state's economic progress, all our efforts go toward giving more to our uniquely Alaskan experience.

    Personally I serve on the boards of the American Heart Association and the Anchorage Economic Development Corp., and am part of the executive leadership team for our local Go Red campaign. Our president, Jim Grazko, serves on the Heart Walk's executive leadership team and soon will speak at the Alaska Health Underwriters luncheon. Nadja Hipszer, our strategic account executive, is a Rotary club member, and Maureen Gali, a client manager, volunteers for the Diabetes Association and their annual walk.

    As a company we sponsor many local organizations across the territory. A partial list includes Bean's Café, Hospice of Anchorage, Covenant House Alaska, and the Rendezvous Senior Day Center in Ketchikan.

    The majority of our associates participate in Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes and the Heart Walk. Join us in the fun this year! Upcoming bulletins will provide the details.
