About the Cover

Alaska, with its unique geographical and ecological characteristics, is experiencing the detrimental effects of climate change at an alarming rate. The Alaska Native (AN) population—deeply connected to the land and its resources—faces disproportionate vulnerability to these impacts. This issue’s cover story, “Impact of Climate Change on Alaska Natives,” highlights the need for environmental public health professionals to engage with AN and Native American communities to address health inequities and to support mitigation and adaptation efforts to tackle the environmental public health threats and consequences of climate change.
