West Central Indiana Area Health Education Center Selects Center Director

The West Central Indiana AHEC has selected Barbara Lucas to serve as Center Director, replacing Louise Anderson, who retired in late 2013.

The AHEC methodology is founded in a "grow our own approach." AHEC works to increase awareness of potential healthcare careers among K-12 minority students and students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Additionally, AHEC then facilitates the clinical rotation of healthcare students into medically underserved rural and urban communities. The hope is those students will decide to practice in those communities. Continuing education for healthcare professionals will also be available through the AHEC program.
