Health for All –Online Exhibit from the National Library of Medicine

A revolution in global health is taking place in villages and towns around the world. Communities, in collaboration with scientists, advocates, governments, and international organizations, are taking up the challenge to prevent disease and improve quality of life.

Recognizing all the factors that cause illness, they are working on a wide range of issues—from community health to conflict, disease to discrimination. The people who face these problems play an important role in their resolution, and each of us can participate in the search for solutions. As we learn more about the challenges of the past, we join a growing community of people committed to global health.

As the stories here show, we can draw upon a legacy of success, often based on the simplest means. Collectively, we can make a world of difference.

Coming to Campus? You will Need Your New Wolfcard to Enter UAA Buildings.

Coming to Campus? You will Need Your New Wolfcard to Enter UAA Buildings.

As you return to campus, it is important that you have your new UAA Wolfcard ready to use. The new WolfCard is required to access campus facilities since the buildings are not yet broadly open to the general public. This includes facilities such as the UAA/APU Consortium Library and Seawolf Sports Complex. You can identify if you have the new chip-enabled card by checking if it has a small, blue “HID” logo on the back in the upper-left corner.

Last December UAA mailed out over 8000 new Wolfcards to students, staff, and faculty. If you received your WolfCard in the mail, it should be registered at this website: https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/Util/Apps/onguard/register-wolfcard.cshtml

If you do not have a new Wolfcard, you can obtain a new card at the Consortium Library or at the Cashiering Office in Eugene Short Hall (102). So far in 2021, the Library has issued about 1500 cards New students at UAA can get their Wolfcards starting August 2nd.

APU students, staff, and faculty: You can obtain your ID Cards from the Information Technology Help Desk in Grant Hall (111). If you have any questions, you can email them at ithelpdesk@alaskapacific.edu
