Since 1985, SEAHEC has been working to expand the reach of health-related services to those places where medical resources are most limited or lacking.
Located in Nogales, Arizona on the U.S./Mexico border, SEAHEC serves a 16,500 square mile tri-county area in which multi-cultural, multi-lingual and multi-national issues play a substantial role.
SEAHEC helps to strengthen the wellness of rural and medically underserved communities by developing health care providers and health care programs. We do this by --
Growing our own: encouraging young people with rural and culturally diverse backgrounds to pursue health careers that can benefit their communities.
Broadening horizons: assisting students in health professions to learn about and experience the value of working in medically under-served areas.
Nurturing quality: providing continuing education opportunities for doctors, nurses, emergency medical personnel, and other health care workers who serve rural and under-resourced locales.
Cultivating collaboration: bringing together people and organizations that share a common commitment to protecting the health of our region.
SEAHEC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by voluntary Board of Directors.
