Area L AHEC’s health careers program has been very valuable to my family. I am a mother of three and am always looking for inventive ideas to get my children inspired about their future. When my children became involved with AHEC, I quickly determined that I had found a gold mine.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for letting me attend MAHEC summer camp those two years in a row. That is when I realized I wanted to become a physical therapist, and now I'm pursuing that dream. That summer camp changed my life.
I can confidently say that the opportunities and experiences that have led me to where I am today can be attributed to Area L AHEC . . . I am excited to continue my journey in becoming a pharmacist and a leader in health care.
The research opportunities that I experienced during my Northwest AHEC and other summer medical programs improved my resume and increased my chances of getting into the medical school of my choice.

Thank you, Northwest AHEC, for being the catalyst to my dreams.
The Charlotte AHEC HEROES program opened up a door for me. It exposed me to a variety of career paths that at one time I felt were out of my reach. I have met so many wonderful people and learned so much by being connected to this program.
