During the interview, Dr. Buttner references an article on grief after traumatic loss, and that article can be found here

With the clinic's leader stepping down soon, Iliuliuk Family Health Services has named an interim executive director: longtime board member Michelle Cochran.

Cochran will take over for outgoing director Eileen Conlon Scott, who resigned last month for personal reasons.

In the search for Scott's temporary replacement, the clinic's board of directors considered candidates across Alaska.
