Academy of Allied Health Sciences
Academy of Allied Health Sciences (AAHSC) is a full-time health sciences school housed in a state-of-the-art 5,200-square-foot facility in Newark. AAHSC’s mission is to provide students, many of whom are low income, disadvantaged and displaced workers, with the skills needed for a career in allied healthcare. The school offers a scholarship program for military spouses. AAHSC boasts a near perfect graduate job placement record.
With the support of the EDA's Loans to Lenders program, Greater Newark Enterprises Corporation (GNEC) provided a $25,000 loan to AAHSC to help with the purchase of equipment and other working capital expenses. The school currently has nine full-time employees and expects to hire several more.
“Our goal is to provide valuable resources to people who are looking to start new careers,” said Suresh V. Sagi, M.D., President, AAHSC. The capital from GNEC has helped us to pay rent and purchase equipment, which enabled us to operate and have revenue coming in sooner than we would have without GNEC’s help.”
