About Us

Erie Niagara Area Health Education Center (ENAHEC) is a 501(c)(3) health workforce development organization. We formed in September 2003 to serve Erie and Niagara counties, and we are dedicated to creating an informed and diverse healthcare workforce.

Our focus is to improve community healthcare outcomes by connecting students, academic institutions, healthcare facilities and current healthcare professionals with communities in need. Through partnership and collaboration with various agencies, we facilitate programs for high school, college and graduate school students, as well as provide continued education opportunities for healthcare professionals. The overarching goal of ENAHEC is to prepare a diverse, culturally competent workforce that is representative of the communities it serves, and to improve workforce distribution within Erie and Niagara Counties particularly among underserved areas and populations.
