PATHS is the regionally recognized "Area Health Education Center", or "AHEC" , for Virginia's South Central Region.  The goal of this program is to identify, recruit, and retain highly qualified health professionals throughout Danville, Lynchburg, and the surrounding area.  This is accomplished through community partnerships that work to develop a strong workforce pipeline at a younger age; increase interprofessional training opportunities and jobs; and to identify and communicate regional health workforce shortages and needs with key stakeholders and legislators.
