Abstract
Clinical preventive services have always been recognized by clinicians as an important part of primary care medicine, but for many years there has been some uncertainty as to the effectiveness of these maneuvers in preventing disease and exactly how and when they should be performed. The recent report of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force provides a comprehensive review of the science base for preventive services and offers specific recommendations for clinicians on the appropriate delivery of screening tests, counseling interventions, immunizations, and other preventive services. The recommendations provide guidance on how to design an appropriate package of services based on the medical history and risk profile of each patient. This article describes the historical background behind the formation of the task force, its methodology and rationale, and the format of the final report, the "Guide to Clinical Preventive Services." The potential implications of this report and its limitations are also discussed.

Abstract
This Notice clarifies the status of Alaska and the District of Columbia shown in the Tables of Federal Medical Assistance percentages calculated for determining the amount of Federal matching in State-welfare and medical expenditures for Fiscal Years 1998 and 1999 and corrects an error for the District of Columbia for 1999. For Medicaid and for the Child Health Insurance Program, the percentages given in the notices are correct. For other uses, including the remaining Title IV programs, the Alaskan percentage for 1998 should be 50.00% and for 1999 should be 52.26%. The District of Columbia percentage should be 50.00% for both years.

Abstract
To describe innovative use of technology to improve the level of pharmacy care in remote villages in rural Alaska.
Cross-sectional study.
The Alaska Native Medical Center and outlying health clinics formed the Southcentral Foundation Pharmacy Network to provide pharmacy services to Native and non-Native patients living in the rural Anchorage Service Unit. The Alaska Native Medical Center served as the central pharmacy, purchasing drugs on behalf of the network and dispensing those drugs to patients of the network. In April 2003, four remote pharmacies began a 6 month comparison of two different telepharmacy equipment systems. The systems were assessed for various factors such as hardware and software capabilities and the customer support offered. The program was then expanded to include 12 participating sites.
During fiscal year 2006, 22665 prescriptions were processed utilizing telepharmacy and prospective pharmacist review. There were 990 documented pharmacist consultations and interventions (4.4% of all prescriptions processed).
Incorporation of recent technological advancements enabled the pharmacy department of the Alaska Native Medical Center to improve and expand the provision of pharmacy services to rural, isolated communities. Based upon the success of the program, future sites are being targeted for telepharmacy inclusion.

Abstract
The transfer to the Indian Health Service (IHS) of 158 alcohol treatment programs that had been administered by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism began in 1978. Today, approximately 300 alcohol and substance abuse treatment programs offer services to American Indians, among them primary residential treatment, halfway houses, outreach, and aftercare. This system provides a national network upon which additional activities may be established. Along with increasing its attention to health promotion and disease prevention, the IHS has moved toward the prevention of alcoholism. A variety of preventive programs are in place that emphasize improved self-image, value and attitude clarification, decision-making, and physical and emotional effects of alcohol and substance abuse. Many begin as Head Start programs and continue through adulthood. In 1986, after consulting with both academic and tribal experts, the IHS devised a strategic plan for alcoholism control that stresses comprehensive care and prevention activities; it serves as a guide for further program development. The Secretary of Health and Human Services created a Task Force on Indian Alcoholism in 1986 to serve as a coordinating body for activities carried out by the IHS and other agencies and units of the Department. Passage of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act in 1986 added resources for the development of adolescent treatment centers and, more importantly, for community-based pre- and post-residential care for youths and their families. Concomitant with these initiatives have been several instances of increased attention by various tribes to the problem of alcoholism.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Abstract
Persons invited to attend the Conference on Man's Health in a Changing Arctic Environment included representatives of government, education, industry, professions and the general public. Scientific disciplines involved were public health, biomedicine, the behavioral sciences, engineering, ecology, economics and education. Each person on the list was invited to submit an Issue Paper for purposes of background and discussion in the Conference. The response was gratifying. Thirty papers were submitted, representing a cross-section of interests and viewpoints. A perusal of this variety of material will be most useful--and probably fascinating--to all participants in the Conference. The papers are presented here just as they were received--unedited and retaining the flavor and personal style of each author.
