COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

The Area Health Education Center was a program in the early 1970s designed to bring health awareness to South Texas and to encourage members of that region to seek possible careers in various health fields, with the hopes that they would return to South Texas with their skills. Summer sessions were organized, bringing high school and college students to Galveston for workshops on medical careers and hospital administration. Follow-up studies were done in hopes that exposure to the medical field encouraged students to pursue medical careers.

In a separate program, University of Texas Medical Branch students went south to Hidalgo, Texas as a part of the Hidalgo Health Assessment Program. While there, the students assisted in the screening of hundreds of Hidalgo school-aged children for common childhood health problems and then advised the families on proper hygiene and health care. Documentation of both programs is included in this collection.

The collection is contained in 10 archival boxes and comprising approximately four feet of shelf space.
