While South Sudan is thousands of miles away from Alaska geographically, it is a part of the world that Bethel has kept a close connection to through Dr. Jill Seaman, a physician who splits her time between Bethel and Old Fangak, South Sudan. In Bethel, she works with the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation. In Old Fangak, she founded and runs South Sudan Medical Relief, a community project focused on providing local health care. Her work has earned her a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship. She joins us just days before leaving Bethel to travel back to continue that work.
