Continuing Education

One of the ways the North Dakota AHEC pursues its mission is through the provision of quality continuing education (CE) programs, resources and technical assistance services to practicing health professionals and agencies in the state. The North Dakota AHEC can help identify, provide, and develop continuing education opportunities for health professionals through community based education and training. We are committed to helping access up-to-date, evidence-based information through professional meetings, conferences, webinars, and locally designed trainings.

National AHEC Organization HPV Immunization Project
The National AHEC Organization received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a project to provide education to health professionals regarding the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. The award supports the hiring of a national leadership team, evaluation staff and 10 HPV Regional Coordinators to coordinate activities in each region, assess the environment, work with states and build partnerships. Selected AHEC entities in all 50 states will work to increase awareness as well as train health professionals about the HPV vaccine.

Mental Health First Aid Training
Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that trains individuals in a community to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training is especially useful in rural communities where access to mental health services may be limited.
