Norton Sound Health Corporation

Board of Directors

Norton Sound Health Corporation’s Board of Directors is comprised of consumers who receive NSHC care – so each of them takes a personal interest in the health and success of the organization. The majority of members are selected by the 20 tribal governments in the Norton Sound region. The board also includes representatives from Nome, where NSHC operations are based.

Our dedicated Board of Directors includes new faces as well as long-standing members who have helped guide NSHC for many years. Our Board Members are tireless advocates for positive change and quality health care for the Native people of the Norton Sound region.
