"The teen AHEC program at Charlotte AHEC is an awesome program. I learned many health care skills such as how to suture, using a hot dog for practice, and how to insert a needle to draw blood. Being part of the AHEC program allows you to network and make yourself marketable to all the health care college programs…  I am very happy that I was able to participate in this amazing program.  Through the knowledge I acquired and networking through AHEC, I was accepted into the Carolinas College of Health Sciences Radiology program.  I am very excited about my future and I have Charlotte AHEC to thank for helping me make it this far in my journey to success!"
