AHLS Regional Directors

The United States and Canada have been divided into regions as to maximize the medical communities access to the AHLS program. A Regional Director, living within the region, has been appointed to oversee the region. Each Regional Director is board-certified in toxicology through the ABAT or the ABMT. In addition, the Regional Director must maintain current AHLS Instructor status.

Typically, when planning a course, the Regional Director is contacted and can serve as the required Course Director and Medical Director for the course. If you are interested in hosting a course, contact the Regional Director for your area, or contact the AHLS International Headquarters.
