California Pan-Ethnic Health Network Bulletin on Health Workforce Diversity


This bulletin from the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network describes the sections of the American Recovery and

Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) which support development of the

health care workforce, and highlights the opportunities to advance diversity in the health professions in California.   Both

the ARRA and the ACA provide millions of dollars to support the recruitment, education, training and placement of

underrepresented minorities in health professions, especially in medically underserved areas and areas with health

professions shortages.  The ACA also creates some significant opportunities to integrate diversity issues into health

workforce development policies, data collection and implementation strategies.
