ANTHC interim president Valerie Davidson selected to lead Tribal health organization permanently
Former Lieutenant Governor Valerie Nurr’araaluk Davidson will step down from her role as president of Alaska Pacific University to lead the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium as its president.
In March, Davidson was named as interim president of ANTHC after the former president resigned. Davidson took a leave of absence from her role at Alaska Pacific.
Davidson – who is Yup’ik from Bethel and a Tribal citizen of Orutsararmiut Traditional Native Council -- previously served as senior director of legal and intergovernmental affairs for ANTHC and commissioner of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.
Hilton Hallock began serving as Alaska Pacific’s interim president during Davidson’s leave of absence. Hallock will continue to serve in that role during a hiring search for president.
