After a roughly seven-month search, Unalaska's health clinic has hired a new CEO. 

Melanee Tiura will start work Sept. 1, after moving with her family from Michigan. 

"She's had experience in Alaska," said Will Rodgers, interim CEO at Iliuliuk Family and Health Services (IFHS). "She was actually a member of the board of the Alaska Primary Care Association."

Tiura previously worked at the Bristol Bay Area Health Corporation between 2010 and 2014.
