Centennial Area Health Education Center (CAHEC) has been serving Northeastern Colorado since 1977. 

CAHEC works in partnership with schools on health career pipeline programs, leading to career opportunities and success. CAHEC hosted one of the first Regional Health Connectors in the state and has since collaborated in educational and healthcare outreach. 

With healthcare and community agencies in the region, we leverage partnerships to develop strategies to address the healthcare gaps and needs in the region.
