AzAHEC Scholars Immersion, Southern Arizona Cohort
February 3 - February 4
The Arizona Area Health Education Center (AzAHEC) Scholars Program (ASP) is a two-year interprofessional program providing health profession students with advanced community-based experiences in rural and underserved settings in the AzAHEC Regional Center service areas. Graduate-level participants are selected from the AzAHEC Rural Health Professions Programs (RHPPs).
AHEC Scholars from the 2022–24 cohort are split into four groups, and each group is assigned to one of four Southern Arizona communities (Benson, Sierra Vista, Vail, and Nogales, Arizona) to conduct a needs assessment and intervention and measure the impact of their efforts. An important concept included in the curriculum is to focus on community assets and build community partnerships to foster realistic and sustainable changes desired by the community. The 2022-24 cohort will begin their second year of the program and are scheduled for completion in May 2024.
