GSAHEC Celebrates 23 Years of Success



Over the past 23 years, Gulfcoast South Area Health Education Center, Inc. (GSAHEC) has been successful in providing training and education to health professionals and students, achieving positive outcomes in tobacco cessation, providing language access training and inspiring and preparing youth to enter the health care professions that communities desperately need. Through funding received from the State of Florida Department of Health, the Tobacco Free Florida AHEC Cessation Program works in every county of the state to help reduce the use of tobacco by delivering effective evidence-based tobacco cessation services for tobacco users and training programs for health care professionals. GSAHEC’s Recruitment & Educational Assistance for Careers in Health (REACH) Program inspires students to choose a career in the health professions and care for underserved populations. Finally, the Advanced Cultural Competence Education and Support Services (ACCESS) Program strives to reduce health disparities and liability risks by assisting local health and human services organizations in providing effective care to linguistically and culturally diverse communities.
