Event
Health Career Pathways at California’s Community Colleges
Date: December 1, 2016
Time: 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. (registration 11:45 a.m.)
Location: Capitol Event Center
1020 11th Street, second floor
Sacramento, CA 95814
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
State policymakers looking to improve economic mobility and meet workforce needs have renewed their focus on career technical (or vocational) education. Health careers are of particular interest because many health jobs pay well and colleges already offer a wide range of programs and credentials. PPIC researcher Shannon McConville will outline findings from two new reports, and a panel of experts will talk about the role of the state’s community colleges in providing health training pathways and economic opportunities to a diverse group of Californians.

This research was supported with funding from the ECMC Foundation and the Sutton Family Fund.

Please register in advance. There is no charge to attend, but space is limited. Lunch will be provided.
