The education focus is a continuation of the AHF’s original mission: aggregating and sharing information about aphasia to educate survivors, caregivers, and the professional community. This original goal will continue to be supported with this web site.

Based on our new findings and meetings in Washington, D.C., we discovered an additional focus relating to our education core. The Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) informed us of Allied Health grants, which focus on training health professionals. To date there has never been any grant request to focus on aphasia specific training. We have been encouraged by HRSA to apply for such grants. This will require AHF to partner with an academic institution. This will also give us an opportunity to add our consumer driven focus to the academic focus of a four-year institution to properly train professionals.
