Health Fair Week: WISH makes its Health Fair debut

WRANGELL Women In Safe Homes was started as a local domestic violence service in Ketchikan and eventually made its way through the region. Last year, WISH received a grant that allowed it to hire rural advocates within Southeast communities. The program's popularity has since grown in Wrangell. This year, WISH will be participating in its first Wrangell Health Fair. KSTK's Tony Gorman recently spoke with local WISH Rural Advocate for Annya Ritchie about the her program's contributions to this year's event.
