New Academic Health Center Web Site

The Academic Health Center (AHC) recently launched a new Web site, 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 domain. The program can now be found at its new address, 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.
