Exciting Changes are Coming

“The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surrounding.” Kakuzo Okakura
 
CCAHEC has always been about being responsive to the changing needs of those we serve. As we enter our 20th year of service to the diverse communities of Colorado, we have important news to share about our future. As of January 31, 2021, Central Colorado AHEC is no longer receiving funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) AHEC Model Grant or the CU Anschutz Medical Campus Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs (AMC VCHA).
 
While the source of some of our funding has changed, the work we are doing continues.
 
With this funding change, we now can expand our reach beyond the traditional Central Colorado county lines and even beyond the state of Colorado without restriction. 2021 will be a year of amazing transition for our organization and we are humbled by the continued support of our partners and community members. The first major milestone of this transition will be establishing a new name for the organization, and we hope to share what we've chosen with you very soon. Continue reading at the link below for a brief overview of what some of our programs are doing so far in 2021. If you have any questions, please reach out to us directly at support@centralcoahec.org.
