WHAT IS MRGB AHEC?
The Mid Rio Grande Border Area Health Education Center (MRGB AHEC) was established in 1993 by a coalition of Laredo community leaders and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) to address the growing need for health care professionals and academic resources in the region. The Center is part of a network of five community-based AHEC Centers with the South Texas AHEC Program located at the UTHSCSA.
Since 1993, the MRGB AHEC has worked to improve the health education opportunities for the people of Laredo and the surrounding region. The MRGB AHEC holds independent status as a 501(c )(3), which broadens funding opportunities and enhances its community-wide base.
