Adopt A Camper!
Health careers pay livable wages and pursuing a career in the health field can help a young person get out of poverty AND improve the health of the community at the same time! Help SWCAHEC grow our healthcare workforce, one camper at a time! Donations and sponsorships help keep camp tuition affordable for families and allow us to offer scholarships so that any student interested in a health career can attend, regardless of ability to pay.
Camp registration is now CLOSED! Stay tuned for info on the 2018 camp.
Colorado has a Prescription Drug Abuse Problem
But by working together, we can reverse the trend.
The Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention (CCPDAP) partnered with the SW Colorado AHEC last September 2016. Medical prescribers were invited to a CME event and heard about best practices in safe prescribing of prescription pain medications.
