Priority / Healthcare Workforce Development

Location / Denver, CO Statewide area of focus

Grant Summary:  To address Colorado’s rural health provider shortages and increasing statewide demand for healthcare professionals, we intend to develop an online Health Science career and technical education (CTE) pathway which will be offered to rural high school students. Rural school districts often do not have the resources to offer CTE programs that prepare students to enter the workforce in high-wage and high-demand healthcare occupations. The pathway will include three online health sciences courses which will educate students on possible careers and prepare them for a seamless transition into necessary post-secondary training for their desired career.
