The South Central Alaska AHEC is excited to announce their expansion to the Mat-Su Valley! AHEC now has an office in the Mat-Su Health Foundation Building, 777 N. Crusey Street, Suite B102 in Wasilla. “The Mat-Su Valley is the fastest-growing community in Alaska. Having a physical presence will allow us to better understand the needs and serve the individuals living in the valley,” said Teresa Novakovich, health education coordinator.

One of the exciting opportunities AHEC is bringing to the Mat-Su valley is the WIOA youth program for individuals ages 17 to 24. This program provides funding and supportive services for youth interested in pursuing healthcare careers.
