Who We Are?

The Fairbanks Wellness Coalition (FWC) was created in 2014.  Our purpose is to foster wellness through primary prevention and advocacy, and our vision is a community where all generations experience wellness in mind, body and spirit. To obtain wellness in mind, body and spirit, we believe it’s important to strive to fulfill all eight dimensions of wellness.  We use them to guide our work. 

We strive to always have members from the following sectors: Youth or youth-serving; parents; business; media; schools; law enforcement; religious or fraternal organization; civic or volunteer group; healthcare professionals; state, local, or tribal agencies; and military. We sometime contract with or provide resources like grants to organizations to help us with our work.

What We’re Doing

We are currently focused on two major prevention efforts in the Fairbanks North Star Borough:
