OKAHEC May Lose Funding

Oklahoma Area Health Education Centers is in danger of not receiving any funds from the state for the second year in a row.

If that happens, the organization will have to slash some of its programs, its national president said.

Andy Fosmire, executive director of Rural Health Projects and Northwest Oklahoma AHEC and president of the national AHEC, sent out an e-mail Monday stating the organization is requesting a budget limitation bill with a line item of $693,000 in the state Health Department’s budget appropriation. The amount is the same level of funding the organization had in 2009-10.
