Blue Ridge AHEC serves twenty counties in Northwest Georgia. The six AHECs in Georgia establish partnerships with local communities and educators to increase the quality, supply, and education of health professionals throughout Georgia. The Georgia Statewide AHEC Network has represented a growing partnership of health providers, health professions students, educators, state agencies, and communities joined together with a commitment to resolve these problems through educational support to health professionals in the field, both as students and as practitioners.
Through these partnerships with communities and post-secondary institutions in Georgia, our AHECs:
- Assist youth and adults who are exploring careers in health care.
- Support the training of students currently enrolled in health care professional programs.
- Provide assistance to recruit graduates and health professionals to our areas.
- Support the education and retention of health care professionals.
