Health Leaders Media

Thousands of nurses and geriatric specialists—many of them minorities—will be trained for the provider workforce under $159.1 million in federal grants under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

“We cannot build a healthier America if our country continues to face a growing health professions shortage,” says Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “A well-trained, educated and diverse workforce is critical to meeting future healthcare demands, and to reforming the nation’s healthcare system.”
