One organization working to help increase the comfort level in Alaska Native (AN) and American Indian (AI) people seeking healthcare is the Recruitment and Retention of Alaska Natives into Nursing (RRANN) program through the University of Alaska Anchorage in Anchorage, Alaska.

While seasonal influenza (flu) viruses can be detected year-round in the United States, flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter. The flu is serious and can even be deadly, but it’s also preventable – and the flu vaccine has been shown to be one of the best ways to protect against the flu.
