California Pan-Ethnic Health Network: Opportunities to Advance Diversity in our Workforce through the New Health Law

This bulletin from the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network describes the sections of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) which support development of the health care workforce, and highlights the opportunities to advance diversity in the health professions in California.   Both the ARRA and the ACA provide millions of dollars to support the recruitment, education, training and placement of underrepresented minorities in health professions, especially in medically underserved areas and areas with health professions shortages.  The ACA also creates some significant opportunities to integrate diversity issues into health workforce development policies, data collection and implementation strategies.
