Health Impact

Mountain Area Health Education Center is dedicated to improving health in the 16 western-most counties in NC through programs that recruit, train, and retain a skilled healthcare workforce, direct patient care to underserved communities, and public initiatives targeting determinants of health. MAHEC’s headquarters in Asheville houses branch campuses of UNC Health’s Schools of Medicine, Global Public Health, Pharmacy, and Dentristy.

Our engagement includes a Development Assessment and Fundraising Plan followed by a Feasibility Study. The team is celebrating MAHEC’s 50th anniversary in 2024 and defining how philanthropy can help the organization have greater impact in Western NC with the compassionate and critical work they do.
