HOW COVID-19 WILL AFFECT CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS


The health and well-being of our continuing professional development customers is our highest priority. Southern Regional AHEC and its Continuing Professional Development Department are actively engaged in monitoring the status and impact of COVID-19. We are monitoring and following all guidance and directives provide by the Centers for Disease Control. Southern Regional AHEC has a COVID-19 taskforce to ensure that we respond to changes quickly and appropriately. In addition, we are participating in the NC AHEC COVID-19 taskforce.


As this public health situation continues to develop, Southern Regional AHEC will strive to keep you informed. Southern Regional AHEC staff will contact customers directly if any continuing professional development events are cancelled, rescheduled or reformatted for web-based learning. If Southern Regional AHEC cancels an event due to this situation, registrants will receive a 100% refund.


We encourage everyone to continue to follow everyday preventive actions to include:

  • Stay at home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.


The health and well-being of our communities is of the most importance to us. The NC AHEC Program is working with regional AHECs to provide continuing education during this time while understanding the need for social distancing.


The following link will take you to a list of webinars and live streaming options that the AHECs are offering at this time. Offerings change frequently so please visit our visual course catalog for regular updates.

WE ARE THE HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL’S SOURCE FOR LIFE-LONG LEARNING


The rapid changes in health care and the technologies that help it advance treatment for patients, demand that health care professionals constantly stay abreast of the latest innovations and best practices.

Since the mid-1970’s, Southern Regional AHEC has provided the resources and knowledge for health care professionals in allied health, dentistry, mental health, nursing, pharmacy, public health and physicians to stay on the cutting edge of new technologies and treatments.

Our goal is to be the health care professional’s source for life-long learning. Check out our continuing professional development calendar of programs that may be of interest to you.
