The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will award the Ohio’s AHEC Point of Service Maintenance and Enhancement project with more than $813,000 between now and August of next year.
Part of those funds will go toward the Sandusky AHEC, which includes Erie, Huron, Sandusky, Seneca and Ottawa counties.
“This is good news for Ohio’s rural and underserved communities,” Brown said. “By ensuring health care education is available in rural areas, we are making a commitment to Ohioans that no matter where you live, you will have access to the best health education there is to offer. It will allow rural health providers to expand their reach and the range of services they provide.”
