Sacramento Selected For White House Health Care Job Program
The White House has chosen Sacramento and six other cities as pilot sites for its new Health Career Pathways program, a federal initiative that aims to increase the number of Americans working in sustainable, well-paying health care jobs. Over the next decade, 3.5 million new U.S. jobs will be created in the health care sector, and thousands of positions in the field remain unfilled, according to the White House. Demand is expected to grow as baby boomers age and require advanced care. (Caiola, 4/27)
