A participant of the Executive Leadership Program at Harvard Business School, Charles Clement also holds a master of public administration degree from the University of Alaska. Since 2012, Charles Clement has served as president and CEO of the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC), which recently earned recognition from the Alaska Immunization Program.

The Alaska Immunization Program recognized SEARHC for achieving its Healthy Alaskans 2020 goal in 2017. The state of Alaska is striving to improve its vaccination rates across the state for children ages 19 to 35 months. The goal is for 75 percent of these children to receive the vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

Within SEARHC, Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in Sitka and Ethel Lund Medical Center in Juneau surpassed the 75 percent mark in an assessment of at least 30 patients. SEARHC is committed to continue its dedication to the health of local children by giving them the vaccines they need to avoid childhood disease and lead healthy lives in the future.
