Since 2012, Charles Clement has worked as chief executive officer and president of the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium, based out of Juneau, Alaska. In this position, he manages the $125 million health care operation and develops long- and short-term goals along with the 15-member board of directors. Heavily involved in numerous Alaska-based organizations, Charles Clement serves as a health director for the Alaska Native Health Board (ANHB).
Established in 1968, the ANHB serves as a statewide voice for health issues involving Alaska natives. It promotes the physical, social, cultural, mental, and spiritual welfare of Alaska native people. The ANHB also works closely with the commissioner of the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and advises the director of the Alaska Area Native Health Service.
In September 2015, the ANHB published the findings of a state-funded behavioral health system assessment. The ANHB worked with the Department of Health and Social Services, the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, and the Mat-Su Health Foundation to determine the results. The comprehensive findings determined that the health system depends upon multiple sources of funding to provide offerings to a range of clients. In addition, the assessment found that the system is fragile but robust, and it must increase in capacity to serve the behavioral needs of Alaskans.
Charles Clement holds an undergraduate degree in economics and political science from Northern Arizona University and completed a masters of public administration at the University of Alaska. He also attended Harvard Business School’s executive leadership program.
