Clinic given name of Angoon’s healthcare hero

The Southeast community of Angoon has officially changed the name of their health clinic to the Jessie Norma Jim Health Center. A dedication and renaming ceremony was held recently by the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) and the Angoon Community Association. The newly-renamed clinic honors longtime Community Health Aide Practitioner Jessie Norma Jim, who worked in Angoon for more than 35 years.
