The Colorado Area Health Education Center Program works to build statewide network capacity and strengthen academic-community linkages in four core mission areas. The four core mission areas of the AHEC are: Health Careers and Workforce Diversity, Health Professions Student Education, Health Professions Continuing Education and Public Health and Community Education.
Colorado AHEC Program’s vision is making connections for a healthy Colorado. We are dedicated to providing community health programs that are responsive to the needs of Coloradoans seeking to live a long and healthy life.
The Colorado AHEC Program office and the six Regional AHEC Centers serve as liaisons between the University and local communities to develop educational outreach and support systems from University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, and link University resources with local planning, educational and clinical resources.
