Community Resources

Due to the economic impact healthcare facilities have in rural communities, the North Dakota AHEC has worked to engage community members and organizations to help recruit health professionals to work in their communities. Community members can help by providing housing assistance, mentoring a health professions student, and by doing what they can to make their community a friendly place for visitors.
