East Central Alabama AHEC has a full time Program Coordinator works with high schools and postsecondary schools in our 16 county area to create and conduct programs designed to encourage students to explore and pursue one of the many health care professions. During the school year, we visit schools and classrooms such as career exploratory programs, science classes and health occupation programs, in addition to participating in school and community health careers fairs. We offer a career exploration tool called Virtual Job Shadowing to help our students grasp the particulars of careers they may be interested in pursuing.  During the summer months we conduct a summer enrichment camp that allows high school students unique opportunities to experience and explore healthcare professions.
