Our Mission: Recruit, Train, and Retain

Piedmont AHEC was established (as Greensboro AHEC) in 1974 as part of the federally-funded Area Health Education Centers Program to provide and support educational activities and services focusing on primary care in rural communities and those with less access to resources. Our mission is to "Recruit, Train, and Retain" the workforce needed to create a healthier North Carolina, including the eight-county Piedmont region we serve.
