A graduate of the University of Alaska, Charles Clement worked for more than a decade as a senior executive with Southcentral Foundation in Anchorage. In 2012, Charles Clement left the organization and joined Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC), where he currently serves as president and CEO.

In addition to overseeing medical facilities in over 20 communities, SEARHC offers a number of programs to help prevent disease and injury among the populations it serves. The organization’s work in the area of health promotion includes the WISEWOMAN Women’s Health Program, which provides cancer screenings and other services for Alaskan women.

Through the program, SEARHC partners with the Breast Cancer Detection Center to provide mammograms in remote communities using a mobile mammography van. The van makes various stops throughout southeast Alaska each spring and fall.

Other services offered as part of the WISEWOMAN Women’s Health Program include free breast exams, pap tests, and cardiovascular screenings. The program also connects women to any follow-up care they may need. More information about WISEWOMAN and SEARHC’s other health promotion programs and activities can be found at www.searhc.org.
