The East Texas Area Health Education Center (AHEC) at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston provides overall leadership for the East Texas Rural Access Program (ETRAP). This project has distinguished itself through the strong grass roots involvement of over 200 individuals in the target region. In addition, the Texas Institute for Health Policy Research convenes a State Agency Advisory Committee that provides a link between ETRAP and state policy makers.
