Welcome to the Wyoming Area Health Education Center web site. Our AHEC mission is to increase access to quality health care and to use educational methods to attract and retain health care providers in areas of need. Programs and services offered through Wyoming AHEC are community-based and focus on community and academic partnerships. AHEC provides health career recruitment programs for K-12 students and increases access to health care in medically underserved areas.

Educational interventions are intended to; promote disease prevention and improve health; encourage interdisciplinary-primary care services; encourage health care cost containment; establish community-based training sites for students in service-learning and clinical capacities; provide continuing education programs for health care professionals; and evaluate the needs of underserved communities.

Our hope is that this web site will be useful to health care providers, educators, and students around Wyoming.
