Future of the Health Workforce Summit
The Future of the Health Workforce Summit was a great success! There were professionals in attendance from all over the state, including representation from all nine counties within our Greater Columbia region. The audience included healthcare providers, academic professionals, and state partners. The summit provided opportunities for partnerships and networking, for organizations to learn how educational institutions are responding to the workforce challenges in the short-term and long-term, and for academia to understand that healthcare organizations have different needs in workforce at all levels.
Attendees had opportunities to learn from experts on ways to strengthen and optimize their organization's workforce strategy. The topics included:
- Diversity, equity, and inclusion
- Innovative solutions in the healthcare workforce
- Washington state perspective on the future of our healthcare workforce
- Healthcare workforce wellness and retention
Greater Health Now is grateful for the opportunity to connect in person and hopes the audience left the conference with actionable takeaways to incorporate into their work.
