Health Careers and Workforce Diversity

The mission of Northwest AHEC Health Careers and Workforce Diversity is the following:

Ensure all health care agencies in the Northwest AHEC 17-county region have a diverse and culturally competent workforce at all health profession levels. We strive to ensure that every student, grades 9-12, post-secondary and in professional schools, in the region is aware of and excited about the broad spectrum of health careers as viable and attainable career options.

Northwest AHEC is committed to diversity and cultural competency not only due to its diverse constituency but recognizes that ultimately the future health outcomes of its constituency will be dependent upon a diverse and culturally competent workforce.
