Jen completed her Master of Public Health at the University of Alaska Anchorage and is now in the early stages of her PhD at the University of Guelph.

The Yukon First Nation Health & Social Development Commission was formed in 1992 in response to a resolution passed at the CYFN Annual General Assembly.
