The Michigan Area Health Education Center (MI-AHEC), a Wayne State University program, announced Jan. 18 it had selected the Greater Detroit Area Health Council (GDAHC) to manage its Southeast Regional Center. The GDAHC replaces the Detroit Wayne County Health Authority, which hosted the Southeast Regional Center since the MI-AHEC was established through a federal grant in 2010. Barbara K. Redman, dean of the WSU College of Nursing and co-principal investigator of the MI-AHEC grant, said in a statement the Greater Detroit Area Health Council has a strong commitment and understanding of the MI-AHECís vision and goals. The center was formed in 2010 by the Wayne State University School of Medicine and Wayne Stateís College of Nursing with funding from a federal grant. The Michigan Area Health Education Center has offices based at Wayne State.
