“What I took away from Healthcare Connect is that no one organization needs to do this on their own. We are all a part of a ‘network of networks,’ and we can rely on one another to provide support, ideas, and solutions to meet the challenges we all face.”
– Joanne Pokaski, Senior Director of Workforce Development and Community Relations, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and Chair of CareerSTAT Executive Committee
In late October, CareerSTAT and Hope Street Group’s Career Pathways Network hosted Healthcare Connect: Developing the Frontline Workforce Together in New Orleans. More than 150 healthcare and workforce leaders came together to discuss the critical challenges facing healthcare’s frontline workforce.
Over the course of two days, participants were able to learn from each other and also recognize and share their own valuable experience. The meeting kicked off with a reception and awards ceremony to recognize the 2018 CareerSTAT Frontline Healthcare Worker Champions and Emerging Champions. The next day, Healthcare Connect kicked off in earnest, with a full day of peer-learning and networking.
