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.

Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association

The Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association (APIA) has started a six-week intensive program for men focused on maintaining a healthy, substance-free lifestyle in Unalaska.

Clinician Delta Bedard is leading the workshop. She said it'll cover 12 topics, including communication, stress management, conflict resolution, and setting healthy boundaries.

"A lot of times with addiction, people live life by default," said Bedard. "They respond to one crisis after another, especially when they're in the throes of addiction. This is going to teach them how to live life with intent."
