SEAHEC Student Training Opportunities Grow

Since 1985 SEAHEC has supported over 1,000 health professions students in exploring what it is like to serve in Arizona’s rural border communities. There are many myths and beliefs about the difficulties of living and working in rural/underserved areas that act as deterrents for health care providers. As a result, the communities most in need have the hardest time recruiting and retaining qualified providers.
