About Us

Southern Alabama Area Health Education (SAAHEC) was established in 2014 and opened its doors in January 2015 in Brewton, Alabama. In December 2020, our office was relocated to Georgiana, AL. 

Our Goals

  • Influence the training of health profession students/residents towards primary care through rotations in rural and under-served Alabama communities.

  • Provide continuing education and support for targeted health providers.

  • Implement programs, services and activities that target underrepresented minorities, rural and other disadvantaged Alabamians for careers in the health professions.

  • Provide innovative, collaborative, inter-professional responses to community needs.
