The WyAETC is locally managed and oversight is provided by the Casper-Natrona County Health Department. WyAETC provides education and services to health care professionals through training (face-to-face, webinars, conferences and workshops), clinical training and mentorship, technical assistance, capacity building, and clinical consultation.
