Building a Regional Health Sciences Talent Pipeline will advance the life and health sciences talent pipeline by establishing a new initiative to better meet the acute and growing need of regional employers for qualified workers, including technicians and others; support the region’s emerging Health and Life Sciences (H&LS) ecosystem; and make the region stronger as a magnet for attracting established companies in the H&LS sector that are seeking to expand or relocate. Over the course of one year, this project will accelerate the establishment of a new model for wide-spread business-education collaboration, increase the number of health and life sciences graduates, and begin to formalize a health sciences talent pipeline.
