The vision for the Workforce Development area of focus is Mat-Su residents are served by a trained and qualified workforce that sufficiently staffs a complete system of care to meet the needs of older residents, families, and children. Workforce development is a key driver in all of the Mat-Su Health Foundations areas of focus. Of the 25 occupations expected to grow the most in Alaska, 23 are related to health and human services. As Mat-Su grows, so does the need for a highly trained and educated health care workforce.

The Mat-Su Health Foundation (MSHF) has released a new report focusing on health and human services workforce development. The entire report titled “The Mat-Su Workforce Development Assessment and Plan” is available to download here.
