Project Asian Health Education And Development (AHEAD):

     Project Asian Health Education And Development (AHEAD) is an 8-week long summer program designed to provide training and experience for college students who are interested in pursuing a career in the health care field. The program consists of a practical field placement, seminars and workshops, and participation in the development and completion of a community health project. Students explore various health careers, and gain an understanding of the dynamics of the New York Asian American community and of current health issues impacting the health status of Asian Americans in the United States.

     Since 1975, Project AHEAD has been part of the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center's on-going efforts to provide excellent and culturally competent health care through preventive medicine, health education, and community involvement. Project AHEAD is the only health career opportunity program in the United States based in an Asian American community and one of the few programs sponsored by a community health center.
