Mt. Huntington Award

This award is granted to Anchorage Project Access providers for their commitment and generous service to our medically uninsured neighbors.


The story behind the award: Anchorage Project Access received a large framed aerial photo of Mt. Huntington as a gift from a grateful patient who received services in 2007. Mt. Huntington (elevation 12,240) is a steep rock and ice pyramid in the Alaska Range totally overshadowed by Mt. McKinley. This mountain represents to the patient the challenges that faced him while unemployed, uninsured and needing two hip replacements. The journey, while a steep climb, represents a successful summit with reclaimed health and employment.
