The Area Health Education Center (AHEC) program is a national initiative, begun in the 1970s, for improving the accessibility and quality of primary health care. The program was designed to encourage universities and educators to look beyond their institutions to partnerships that meet community health needs, working toward the goal of decentralizing health professions training and linking communities with academic health centers in partnerships that promote cooperative solutions to local health problems. Almost every state has an AHEC program. The program operates through contracts between the host medical school and regional AHEC centers. These centers may be independently incorporated, or they may be hosted by a local health care provider or community organization. They all must have an advisory board with membership drawn from the region served by the center. The nature of the programming undertaken by these centers varies greatly, depending upon state and academic resources and local needs, but almost always includes:
• Developing learning experiences for all health professions students at community-based sites;
• Sponsoring health careers programming in schools in underserved rural and urban areas;
• Providing services to health professionals in underserved communities to enhance the practice environment and connect community practitioners with the educational resources of the academic medical centers; and
• Partnering with local organizations in a variety of outreach activities to improve the health of the community. AHEC programs receive federal funding as “Basic AHEC” programs for their first six to twelve years of operation, depending upon the number of centers they develop. Thereafter a successful AHEC may apply for continued funding under the “Model AHEC” program. In both phases, programs reapply for federal funding every three years. To qualify for continued funding, in addition to meeting the federal programmatic requirements, programs must show significant match (at least 1:1) from state or other non-federal resources.

Part of learning about a culture includes the food. Students participating in this year's WI Express were provided supplies and a virtual demonstration to make their own Egg Rolls. The results look delicious.
