IP Director Susan Thomas opened the day’s events with her quarterly summary of Greater Philadelphia Healthcare Partnership activities and achievements. To date, the Partnership has completed 258 trainings, and is on pace for another banner year as a leading provider of low-cost, high-quality training solutions for the Greater Philadelphia region’s frontline healthcare workers and managers.
The Partnership also announced that it had officially kicked off work on its new, $4 million On-the-Job Training (OJT) grant from the US Department of Labor, with a number of Community Health Worker placements already agreed to by participating employers. Also introduced was Lacey Dickinson, the Partnership’s new Employer Liaison. Lacey moved into her current role from another local industry partnership, the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia, where she served as Membership Manager.
