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 organizations; civic or volunteer groups; healthcare professionals; state, local, or tribal agencies; and military. We sometimes contract with, or provide resources like grants to, organizations to help us with our work.
