Excerpt:
As more health professionals retire, the University is working to avoid a future workforce shortage crisis.

Since 2002, the University's Academic Health Center has worked in under-served, rural parts of the state by establishing Area Health Education Centers in Hibbing and Willmar, with sites in Fergus Falls and Crookston in the works.

The centers work with communities to increase the health-professional workforce and contribute to local economies. It is part of a national program that began in 1970.
