The BAHEC facilitates a Interdisciplinary Health Education Committee (IHEC) with members representing diverse health discipline. IHEC members may be any interested health professionals, nominated by a local health professional organizational group and/or AHEC Board Member. Recently the IHEC has been helping to conduct interdisciplinary training on the opioid overdose epidemic. BAHEC is an certified Overdose Response Program with the Maryland Department of Health. To date BAHEC has helped dispense over 80 prescriptions of the life saving drug Narcan to health professional students at University of Maryland Baltimore as part of IPE Overdose Response Trainings.
Over the 2017-2018 Academic year the IHEC will be helping BAHEC plan for a new AHEC Scholar Program. The AHEC Scholar Program will begin in the Fall of 2018 and be interdisciplinary training program and include clinical and didactic community based training activities. Students will receive a stipend for participating and there will be a formal application process. Look for more information in the future!
