West River Area Health Education Center



Communities refers to a group that shares common values such as intent, beliefs, resources, preferences, needs and risks. Health professions impact all aspects of communities. We are here to assist you in enlisting and keeping qualified health professionals through local government and community service groups. Investing in health professions and education will ultimately lead to solid community development and sustainability. A longer healthier life in a rural community is key to our future.
