Board of Directors

The foundation of Omaha AHEC’s success is integrating the collective wisdom and generous resources from area organizations. Our innovative programs are the result of strong partnerships with others committed to AHEC’s mission.

"The Omaha AHEC has a broad goal to solve the health care workforce shortage problem in Metropolitan Omaha. This effort requires the collective wisdom and generous resources of Omaha to develop the workforce needed to keep pace with the demands of the health care delivery system. On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Omaha AHEC, thank you for your support."
