The Southern Regional Information Access for Public Health Professionals Project brings together in partnership the Southern Regional AHEC (SR AHEC) and the nine public health departments in the SR AHEC region: Bladen, Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Moore, Richmond, Robeson, Sampson and Scotland. The purpose of the project is to ensure that public health professionals are connected to information resources that will help them design population-based interventions that best address health issues in their local communities. It provides enhancements to the technology and telecommunications infrastructure at each of the nine health departments that include hardware upgrades, Internet user accounts and a new computer. Through the project, the public health professionals are trained to use PubMed, Internet Grateful Med, Loansome Doc and CDC Internet resources. Also, the participants will be linked to training opportunities available at other North Carolina AHEC centers and universities.

The Southern Regional Information Access for Public Health Professionals Project established this regional public health web site to act as an Internet Gateway to health information. It is an avenue for communication for the SR AHEC public health community and a training tool for community based undergraduate and graduate medical and health education students. This web site will serve as an Internet Gateway to national, state and local resources important to public health professionals. Lastly, it provides a link to the SR AHEC Information Access Centers staff who will provide knowledge management services to the public health professionals in the nine-county region.
