Outreach Opportunities

For more information, please call 304-340-8000

The HealthNet Aeromedical Services team provides our referring agencies with many opportunities to continue their education. The majority of the courses are available at no cost and can be brought to individual facilities. Each county in the HealthNet response area is served by a flight team member. This individual acts as a liaison for the requesting agencies in that area. Requests for continuing education or speakers can be processed through this website as well.
