Southeast Area Health Education Center holds Fall Expo

The Southeast Kentucky Area Health Education Center recently held the yearly Fall Expo as high school students from across the region took part in the event held at the Harlan Center. Over 600 students participated as they observed demonstrations and received key information about various health care opportunities. Shandeal Fields coordinated the event. AHEC, she noted, is an organization that covers 16 counties in Eastern Kentucky and provides clinical rotations in rural practice settings while bringing health career programming to local schools, all the while helping prepare youth to enter the healthcare labor force. Additionally, SKCTC students taught by Matthew Druen served as official hosts and guides.
