New Academic Health Center Web Site
The Academic Health Center (AHC) recently launched a new Web site, www.health.uc.edu. The new site features additional content, enhanced navigation, a new, fresh look, interactive features—and a new URL. The new address better reflects the “readopted” Academic Health Center name and the scope of services found on the AHC campus. With the new AHC address comes a new Web home for Health-UC, the university's Area Health Education Center program (AHEC), which previously occupied the health.uc.edu domain. The program can now be found at its new address www.health.uc.edu/ahec, which also better defines AHEC and the services it provides. The AHC Web project was a collaboration between the public relations office, which managed the design and content, and academic information technology & libraries, which provided the technology. Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (513) 558-4639.
