On Friday December 1, 2017, all nine NC AHECs will host six concurrent conferences for rural nurses working in underserved areas of North Carolina:
Wake AHEC, Eastern AHEC, and Area L AHEC: Edgecombe Community College - Tarboro Campus Eastern AHEC and South East AHEC: Turnage Theater in Washington, Beaufort County
Southern Regional AHEC, South East AHEC and Charlotte AHEC: Robeson Community College Northwest AHEC and Greensboro AHEC: Davidson County Community College
MAHEC and Western Carolina University: WCU Cullowhee Charlotte AHEC and MAHEC: Isothermal Community College
These conferences will provide support mechanisms for practicing rural nurses by giving opportunities to share clinical, organizational, developmental and emotional experiences with other rural nurses in an environment that will enhance their current knowledge and skills.
Two statewide broadcast keynote addresses will link all the regions together setting the theme for the conference and each AHEC will offer additional live, on-site presentations that focus on regional topics.
