A Message from Wisconsin AHEC
It is with heavy hearts that we share this message with our students, partners, funders, supporters and the communities we serve. The murder of George Floyd, and so many others before him, has shined light on the long standing history of racism and inequity in our country. Black Lives Matter. We are all feeling pain, outrage, and uncertainty. The nature of our work at Wisconsin AHEC positions us to be powerful advocates, allies for our communities of color, and change agents as we strive to accomplish a more representative health care workforce, address social determinants of health, and support cultural competency efforts in our communities. We must answer the call to action – louder and with more intentionality than we ever have before. We are committed to educating, advocating, and demonstrating our values in our programming and policies.
We trust you will join us in our work to face social inequalities head-on and commit to peaceful strategies that lead to systematic change.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and consistent with directives from the CDC, Wisconsin AHEC has limited all programming to virtual or livestream format. Programs or events that are not conducive to remote delivery will be canceled with consideration, when possible, for rescheduling to a later date. Additionally, all of our team members are practicing social distancing to help mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The best way to reach us during this time is through email at email@example.com or directly through our Regional Centers.
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. The national program was designed to encourage universities and educators to look beyond their institutions to partnerships that meet community health needs, working toward the goal of decentralizing health professions training and linking communities with academic health centers in partnerships to promote cooperative solutions to local health problems.
