HHS Announces Grants To Boost Health Care Work Force
Last week, HHS announced more than $130 million in grants to help strengthen the country's health care work force. The grants aim to support primary care work force training, oral health work force training, equipment purchases, student loan repayment, educational programs and chronic disease management initiatives. A portion of the funding comes from the 2009 federal economic stimulus package.
