Laredo Library Staff Provides Summer AHEC Orientations & Tours

 

The Laredo Regional Campus Library staff has already been busy this summer providing orientations and tours for students attending the many summer programs offered by the Mid Rio Grande Valley Area Health Education Center (MRGV AHEC). It is hoped that many of these students will go on to careers as area health professionals in order to help reduce the lack of access to primary care in the Laredo area and surrounding border regions of Texas. Laredo is located in Webb County which is one of many South Texas counties designated as a medically underserved Primary Care Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA).

Library staff will also provide support for a new fellowship program in July, Epidemiology and Public Health Research. Planned in cooperation between the Laredo Regional Campus and Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), the program will be attended by 7 area high school students. Statistical software, SAS, has been installed on 4 desktops in the Library computer lab and 3 new book titles have been added to the Library collection in support of the program.
