Alaska Center for Rural Health, Alaska's AHEC, exists to help strengthen systems to deliver comprehensive and culturally relevant health care to rural Alaska. It serves all aspects of Alaska's rural health system: Native and non-Native, physical and behavioral, within all disciplines as they struggle to address our state's health delivery challenges. AHEC is focused on strengthening Alaska's health workforce in three distinct areas: (1) encouraging youth and people from disadvantaged backgrounds to enter health careers, (2) coordinating clinical rotations to encourage health-profession students to secure and retain employment in areas with underserved populations, and (3) providing continuing education in underserved areas, with the goal of retaining health care workers. akcache.org
