During this webinar series, Primary Care Association (PCA) and Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) staff were invited to join the STAR2 Center team for a monthly webinar series focused on workforce professional development. Series topics were designed to align with current workforce initiatives led by the Bureau of Primary Health Care and enable attendees to work with their member health centers to develop comprehensive workforce plans. This “train the trainer” series aimed to bolster workforce efforts internally at PCAs and HCCNs in order to provide a robust support system for recruitment and retention efforts at health centers.
