What do we love about Southeast Alabama AHEC?

What I love most about AHEC is that we strive to have equal access to healthcare for all Alabamians. I grew up in a rural area and I still remember the excitement surrounding the opening of our first doctors office in our city. Hopefully, more cities in Alabama can feel that excitement too.

I love being able to go out to rural areas and help come up with new and innovative ways to get those communities the access to healthcare that they need. What I love the most is leaving a clinic that we have hosted and seeing all of the smiling faces on those patients that we have helped.

A key aspect of AHEC's mission is to enhance accessibility to quality health care in underserved communities. As a Program Coordinator with Southeast Alabama AHEC, I am afforded the opportunity to  inspire and influence the health care leaders of the future, helping to empower tomorrow's workforce in an effort to improve health care delivery state-wide.
