Abstract: This session will highlight an ongoing program at the Northeast KY AHEC entitled, "Letters From Home". This program works collaboratively with in-state Universities, local hospitals, and our AHEC, which has a 17-county service area. The purpose of the program is to continue the pipeline from beginning to retention in hopes to change rural healthcare by raising/teaching these medical students in the rural area and bringing them back to practice. This program follows students through their medical education by staying in touch and sending information about new and exciting events/programs going on in the region. The reason for the "Letters From Home" program is to decrease the shortage of physicians in rural areas.
