Southwest Missouri Area Health Education Center

My name is Trish Lavish, and I work for the AHEC (Area Health Education Center) serving the Southwest Missouri area. As a school in our area of coverage, I am writing to inform you of the health-related educational activities that AHEC can provide to interested students,to encourage them to pursue health-related fields post high school.

We realized that with our current model we are unable to reach all the rural/underserved students in our region, especially the ones that are more than an hour drive from our hub sites in Springfield and Bolivar. AHEC is a great resource for your school and we would love to create a partnership by coming to you, to assist students of all demographics.

Some of the workshops/trainings we can offer at your school include:

These options can be provided at no cost to the recipient:

  • Health Careers Presentations and discussions related to preparing for a career in healthcare with handouts and other preparatory materials- usually we do this one first as an introduction to the following opportunities!
  • CPR in Schools training (no certification)
  • Disaster Simulation and Triage Training & Emergency Preparedness Training
  • Infection control with gowning/gloving and proper hand-washing activities
  • Nutrition topics throughout the life span (Topics to include proper nutrition for growth and development, brain function, sports activities, in disease, maternal and infant nutrition, consequences of sedentary lifestyle and inadequate nutrition and others upon request)
  • Oral Health Activities
  • Preparation for college selection and what students can do now to better prepare themselves for their desired college or university. (We also love joining you for college/career fairs!)
  • Healthe Foundations Training: students learn about the most preventable chronic diseases in the U.S. and how they are treated by a healthcare team. Students then prepare a health plan presentation to help their “virtual” patient get on track to a healthy future. (This training is completed in cooperation with the First Hand Foundation and requires an MOU with the foundation. It is best completed over several days or one full day (can be a Saturday if need be). See separate flyer on this really neat training!


These options can be provided with fees paid by the recipient to cover supply costs:

  • BLS/CPR training and/or certification
    • (certification of up to 9 students @ $25/student- takes 4 hours total)
  • First Aid training and/or certification
    • (certification of up to 20 students @ $25/student- takes 3.5 hours total)
  • Injections and Phlebotomy/Blood Draw training- $25 to cover up to 15 students (prorated rates for additional students)
  • Animal Dissections over assorted body systems with pathology and treatments discussed [The school or students must cover the cost of the specimens and we will instruct. We have all dissection trays/instruments for up to 30 students and they can be brought upon request (usually specimens run $15 to $30 and up to 3 students can share)



Save The Date! Drury University’s Hammons School of Architecture 2018

On Friday October 5th, Drury University’s Hammons School of Architecture will host our annual DRURY ARCHITECTURE DAY event, for which I have attached an invitation that you can distribute to your students. This is an all-day event that allows high-school students interested in studying architecture to learn about our program, spend time in the design studios with our students, and tour area architectural offices.

We think that a broad range of your students might be interested in a career in architecture. Although many assume that you have to be great at math to do architecture, or you to have to draw well, or take drafting classes, in reality there are all kinds of students who can do well both academically and professionally as architects. In particular, our school seeks students who are creative problem solvers and strong conceptual thinkers. 

Drury University offers one of the few nationally accredited architecture programs within a small liberal arts campus. This setting allows our faculty to know our students and understand their interests. Our flexible curriculum enables students to craft an education that matches their aspirations. Double-majors, extra-curricular activities, music, and athletics are common and encouraged. This broad and personalized approach prepares students to be leaders and innovators who move the field in unexpected directions. Our graduates not only pursue professional excellence but also lives well-lived—marked by commitments to communities and personal fulfillment.

I hope you will consider passing on the invitation to any of your students who you think might be interested. We would also be happy to arrange a presentation at your school if you have classes that might be curious about architecture as a career.

Hear From Past Participants
Alive at 25:

  • “Opened my eyes to how dangerous driving really is.”
