How You Can Help

Febuary 12th, 2024

The Brooklyn Queens Long Island Area Health Education Center (BQLI-AHEC) is a state and federally-funded workforce development nonprofit. Our mission is to develop a skilled healthcare workforce with the tools to effectively treat underserved communities. Our strategies include:

  • Career exposure opportunities for youth and adults
  • Furthering collaborative partnerships with community organizations, hospitals, and schools
  • Development of a network consisting of health and education resources to foster collaboration.
  • Leading joint advocacy efforts alongside partners to increase skilled healthcare professionals

Since its inception in 2003, BQLI-AHEC has worked with over 5,000 middle, high school, and college students to expose and guide them toward rewarding careers in medicine.

In achieving our mission, we have developed the Hazel Sanderson, EdD., R.N. Health Career Scholarship, which supports one deserving student who has completed at least one BQLI-AHEC program in the past five years and is pursuing a career in the healthcare profession.

Would you consider donating to help us provide a student with the support to realize a career in a healthcare profession and make a positive impact in the lives of others?

If you have any questions, we would be happy to provide you with more information about how you can help support our work at BQLI-AHEC.
