Congratulations to Dr. Paul Forward, Top Forty Under 40 award recipient

April 8, 2019

The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium is proud to announce Dr. Paul Forward as a recipient of The Alaska Journal of Commerce’s Top Forty Under 40 award. Every year, the Journal awards Alaskans for their talent and outstanding efforts in communities across the state.

Dr. Forward works in rural Alaska through the ANTHC Rural Provider Network, most recently at the Maniilaq Health Center in Kotzebue. The ANTHC Rural Provider Network connects specialty care doctors to the places that they are needed most but might not otherwise be available in smaller communities. These doctors are employed by ANTHC and deliver health care services at Tribal health organizations across Alaska.

The Journal chose Dr. Forward out of the largest group ever nominated for the award. He was chosen not only for his service as a medical provider, but for his passion as a lead guide for Chugach Power Guides out of Girdwood.

Jason Motyka of Girdwood stated on Dr. Forwards nomination form, “Paul’s passion and determination to help communities all over Alaska through his medical work combined with his knowledge and leadership skills as an Alaskan outdoorsman make him a truly unique candidate for the 2019 Top Forty under 40 class.”

The Consortium congratulates and Dr. Forward for his work in the community. Thank you for your service at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium to fulfill our vision that Alaska Native people are the healthiest in the world. Your service as a physician and lead ski guide help sustain and improve the vibrancy of our Alaska communities.
