This month marks the 25th anniversary of both the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) program and of Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Family Medicine’s rural rotation in Enterprise.

The programs together have touched Wallowa County in countless ways. The AHEC has brought programs like MedQuest and Girls in Science that have trained and mentored Wallowa County Youth to pursue health-focused careers. The AHEC Rural Community Health Clerkship and Oregon Rural Scholars rotations in Enterprise, and the OHSU rural residency program in Klamath Falls have brought to Wallowa County four primary care doctors — Dr. Caine, Dr. DeYoung, Dr. Powers and Dr. Sheahan.
