| Texas AHEC East is honored to have served the people and communities of the Eastern half of Texas over the past 26 years. Unfortunately, budget cuts have necessitated program reductions in some regional operations effective August 31, 2017. We are transitioning to strategic staffing in order to continue to develop and enhance education and training networks within communities, academic institutions, and community-based organizations.
Since we initiated our program in 1991, the people who have served in our organization have worked with dedication and commitment, dignity, integrity, and passion for our work. Each person has maintained a steadfast desire to help improve the health and well-being of the people and communities we have served. I KNOW that this AHEC program has made a difference for hundreds of thousands of people both young and old. Yes, HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of people, and too many communities to keep a count of over our 26 year history. That is NOT an exaggeration.
