Chicago AHEC hosts interdisciplinary/inter-professional trainings to promote best practices in primary care, health promotion, and delivery reform. Our intent is to include a wide range of health professions to support interdisciplinary sharing and learning.
- Chicago AHEC hosted a Veterans workshop focused on expanding access to mental health services for underserved Veterans. The workshop covered training for diagnosing and treating veterans for post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
- On January 30, 2013, Chicago AHEC co-hosted a training, "Advocating for Low Income Clients in the New Healthcare Environment." Over 150 health and human service professionals joined to learn about the new CountyCare program at the Cook County Health & Hospitals System, the new charity care eligibility standards, and the Medicaid Managed Care Integrated Care Program.
- Chicago AHEC hosted a training/workshop for health professionals to learn about Mental Health Services available for Veterans and their families through Tricare. The workshop provided in-depth information about diagnosing and treating veterans for post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Providers were also given the opportunity to hear from "Boots on the Ground" veterans sharing their mental health challenges and responding to questions.
