2017 Statewide Health Care Workforce Summit


"Too many conferences only bring together individuals with similar mindsets. It is important to bring together attendees with different viewpoints. This leads to robust discussions and results [...] it is only by bringing all of the stakeholders together that real progress can be made." - Dr. Jose Franco, Kern Institute for the Transformation of Medical Education, discussing WCMEW's 2017 Statewide Workforce Summit

The event was designed to think collaboratively across both clinical disciplines and geographic regions to develop comprehensive workforce strategies, elevate workforce as a public policy issue, and forge relationships across traditional silos.
