A Special Message Regarding COVID-19

During this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, ASTEC is committed to providing technology, methodologies, and resources to meet the learning and training needs of our community. We are compiling a multitude of online tools, materials, and interactive technologies to fill the educational gap for our healthcare profession students while they must temporarily step away from the bedside. It is our duty to provide, wherever possible, the strategies and the methods to support our healthcare providers and to ensure that we continue to provide excellent preparation for those who will be tomorrow’s providers. We want you to know that we are all in this together and ASTEC has been mobilized to provide whatever is needed to help us through this crisis.
