The NC AHEC Program is sensitive to and saddened by the persistent and pervasive injustices to Black and Brown people and other multicultural populations as evidenced by recent and historical acts of structural racism, violence, inequities, and power paradigms. We recognize that health disparities are another form of injustice that is disproportionately experienced by these communities. 

Tremendous change is needed in our state to address these issues. The NC AHEC Program was established to affect change. We remain committed to our values of diversity, excellence and integrity in all aspects of our program. We will increase our focus to better fulfill our vision where every North Carolinian is healthy and supported by a health workforce that reflects the communities it serves.

Please join us in continuing our work to make this change.
