Creating a Diverse Healthcare Workforce
"Erie Niagara AHEC has helped me solidify what I want to pursue as a career. From visiting research labs to understanding how medical school works, my love for the healthcare field has grown immensely. I appreciate everything this opportunity has brought forth."

Erie Niagara AHEC Spotlight
Erie Niagara AHEC is now a PATCH site for HOPE Buffalo!
PATCH (Providers and Teens Communicating for Health) is an innovative, youth-driven program working to ensure all youth are able to receive high-quality, youth-friendly healthcare services.
We hire youth (ages 15 to 19) and train them as Teen Educators. As Teen Educators, they lead PATCH workshops and share their authentic youth experiences, concerns and preferences. We believe THEY are best equipped to provide this insight.
