Southwestern AHEC's mission is to improve access to quality primary and preventive healthcare in Southwestern Connecticut by connecting students, families and health care providers through education, workforce development, and community collaboration.
We do this by “Enriching lives through careers, community and better health.”
Our programs focus on:
- Health Careers Diversity – Building a diverse healthcare workforce by engaging kids K- 16 in learning about health careers and the health care field.
- Children's Immunizations – Working to achieve a 90% and above level of immunization in children ages 0-2 years in the Bridgeport community,
- Connecting Oral Health and Medical Health – to identify ways to improve overall health by educating providers, consumers and communities about how the oral health links to general health.
Our success is built on building relationships and working to highlight our strengths and, the strengths of our community partners. Our impact is stronger when we link our programs to complement others in the community.
