Did You Know?

Welcome Tilton, SWCAHEC's New Healthcare Pipeline Associate

Tilton

Yá'át'ééh! (Hello) My name is Tilton Dennison and I'm a member of the Diné (Navajo) Nation. I am from an area known as Chíí Deezáhí, which is located 5 and 1/2 miles northeast of Aneth, Utah.

I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Diné College, and currently work with TRIO Talent Search as an Academic Advisor and also with SWCAHEC as a Healthcare Pipeline Associate.

When I'm not working, I enjoy doing artwork (feather work/bead work), hiking, and traveling with my wife Caitlyn and my two beautiful girls.

Ahec Scholars Education program Durango

SWCAHEC offers a FREE program for students enrolled in health professions programs who are interested in learning more about rural or underserved healthcare populations. The program requires 40 hours of online modules (self-paced) that span across topics such as interprofessional education, practice transformation, behavioral health integration, health equity and current issues such as COVID 19.

These modules come primarily from University of Colorado and Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center. The program also requires 40 hours of experiential learning which can be counted from their existing program internship, practicum or clinical hours. Students can sign up for 1 or 2 year participation depending on where they are in their program. We also facilitate a monthly collaborative meeting for students to network and often have local speakers from healthcare or social service organizations. This nationally recognized program is a great addition for employment or nursing or graduate school applications.

Contact Heather Sorensen at heather.sorensen@swcahec.org for more information or submit an application to our website here https://formstack.io/F2DD3

AHEC Scholars is a national program, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, that prepares students to serve rural and other medically underserved populations.
