NERETA Summit Focusing on Future of Healthcare in the US
Focusing on the future of healthcare in the US will help to create good quality jobs while at the same time improving individuals lives and create a better quality of life for all. But the future of healthcare encompasses so much more than was traditionally referred to as "healthcare." Today, healthcare includes integrative health, mental health, alternative health, public health, nutrition, exercise and so much more.
That is why NERETA is hosting a summit on "Developing a Talent Pipeline for the Healthcare industry" in Scranton, PA on Sept 17 and 18. The website for the summit is: summit.nereta.org.
LaRose continued, "Each local region across the country is a link in the chain of our national economy. If we want our national economy to forge ahead with strength, we must make sure that the health of our nation is at the core of our intentions."
That is why teams are being invited from local regions around the country made up of workforce development, economic development, higher education and healthcare industry leaders to discuss how they can work collaboratively in their region toward three goals:
1) To help regions from across the country develop talent pipelines for the healthcare industry
2) To help local/regional administrators establish a healthcare sector/cluster strategy for their region
3) To help healthcare professionals establish a working relationship with workforce development, economic development and higher education professionals to collaboratively promote healthy communities.
The future of healthcare in the US depends on recruiting, training and retaining talent in the healthcare industry as well as leadership training in economic development for healthcare workers so that they may partner effectively with regional administrators in establishing healthy communities...that is what this summit is all about.
The North East Regional Employment and Training Association (http://www.nereta.org) connects workforce investment boards to economic development boards and their stakeholders in the northeastern US to improve communication and collaboration of employment and training initiatives and improve local economies. NERETA also provides professional development opportunities for workforce development and economic development professionals nationally through webinars, seminars and conferences.
