Ashe Healthcare Workforce Needs

Year Funded

2015

Amount

$15,000.00

The project will address the needs of the region?s aging population to secure more healthcare positions. Because a portion of this aging population will not be in long-term care facilities, nursing assistants, phlebotomists and paramedics will also be needed in the hospitals, for in-home care options as well as on the front-line for emergent needs. Funding will assist with tuition costs for approximately 60 students.
