SEAHEC and Eastern AHEC Donate Medical Journals and Books to Moldova

On Thursday morning, October 20, 2011, a contribution of 125 boxes of medical journals and books donated by North Carolina medical professionals began its journey to the Scientific Medical Library of Moldova. Volunteers from SEAHEC and Eastern AHEC loaded the books into a truck bound for Moldova in eastern Europe, courtesy of the U.S. State Department (photo below).

Books for Moldova

In 2006, SEAHEC formed a partnership with Scientific Medical Library of Moldova to provide current medical texts for Moldovan health care providers who don’t always have access to the latest medical research and treatments often found in American medical publications. Prior to this latest donation, SEAHEC and the AHEC system has helped provide over 21,000 medical journals and books.
