This June, the South Carolina AHEC joined AHECs from across the country at the 2014 National AHEC Organization (NAO) Conference in Charlotte, NC. The four-day conference was an opportunity for AHEC programs to present on best practices and successful initiatives, dialog about the current state of healthcare, and look to the future.

Members of South Carolina AHEC presented a total of 16 presentations encompassing interprofessional practice, community health worker programs, assessing continuing education outcomes, workforce data and analysis, and the health professions pipeline. South Carolina AHEC staff brought back many innovative ideas from the inspiring conference and look forward to putting these ideas to work.
