What the heck is an AHEC?

An Area Health Education Center, or AHEC, is many things to many people because it is a nationwide system as well as an Oregon system.  Working together AHECs make a difference by connecting students to careers, professionals to communities and communities to better health.

How do we do this?

The Oregon AHEC program helps develop health career pathways and sustainable healthcare in Oregon communities.  The Pathways are health careers promotion and training.  The Sustainable Healthcare is achieved by supporting professional growth for healthcare professionals and local community support.
