Alaska Primary Care Association
The Alaska Primary Care Association (APCA) is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1995. APCA’s mission is to create healthy communities in Alaska through the support of vibrant and effective Community Health Centers. APCA is committed to healthcare workforce development and a proud host to South Central Alaska AHEC.
Area Health Education Centers
The SC Alaska AHEC is a part of a network of statewide AHECs, which span across our State. There are six AHEC centers across our state, with a Program AHEC office located at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Our AHEC Centers collaborate to grow, enhance, and strengthen our health workforce for the future of Alaskans.
Partnership is vital to our mission of growing the health workforce in Alaska, with an aim towards meeting the needs of the rural and urban underserved communities. Our program partners help leverage our efforts to 10x our impact in Alaska. They provide information, practicum experiences, mentoring, and employment resources to our students. They provide us with the physical space for our training programs and health career camps. They help our grant dollars stretch farther. They contribute to the overall sustainability of our organization. We greatly appreciate the fine work of these partner organizations:
