In only 9 months since it was first formed, Health & Medicine’s Chicago Area Health Education Center (AHEC) has made an incredible impact addressing health disparities through health career promotion and professional education and support. We’ve reached out to over 2,000 individuals, including underrepresented youth and adult career seekers throughout Chicago. We also organized a train the trainer workshop for Behavioral Health Services for returning veterans and their families to over 40 providers from across the US. AHEC is a federally-funded program and its future is in doubt. Your help is urgently needed to keep the program going
-- please phone your state representative to ask for renewed funding for AHEC. It will only take a few minutes of your time. We’ve prepared a fact sheet
and a toolkit
to help you make the call. Thank you!
