Connecting students to careers, professionals to communities, and communities to better health.

The Consortium for Health Education in Appalachia Ohio (CHEAO), an Area Health Education Center, partners with primary care providers, state agencies, clinics, schools, and other key stakeholders to promote and support programs that will enhance the health careers workforce and/or foster better health for southeast Ohio communities.

If you're thinking of joining the health care community or are already a student or a practicing healthcare provider, CHEAO can help connect you with a wide variety of educational opportunities.

Our center offers professional health education and community health programs by:

  • Facilitating community-based clinical training
  • Providing continuing education programs for healthcare providers
  • Coordinating health fairs, school visits, campaigns to raise public awareness of health issues and other service learning activities
  • Supporting  the coordination of clinical training of OU-HCOM medical students in community sites and service learning activities for first and second year medical students
