BAHEC aims to provide free CEUs that might be valuable to the community’s provider network to help eliminate health disparities.

Currently the National AHEC Organization is providing a free online 1.5 credit hour class for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists to learn about HPV vaccinations and the need for a strong recommendation in girls and boys 11-12 years old. The course includes up to date information on HPV, the vaccine, and ways to successfully communicate with patients and parents about it and is provided by faculty from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
