Wisconsin AHEC improves access to quality health care by developing community-based health professions training programs and enhancing health education resources across the state.

AHEC is a health professions education and outreach program funded by federal grant and direct appropriation from the state legislature. It is part of a nationwide network of programs for improving accessibility and quality of primary health care.
