Grant to address healthcare worker shortage

A Fast Forward grant totaling almost $386,000 has been issued to help the Workforce Development Board of South Central Wisconsin (WDBSCW) and UW Health address critical healthcare workforce needs in the Dane County region.

In the last year, healthcare organizations in Dane County had a total of 325 Medical Assistant job openings. The demand for these trained workers will continue to increase each year for at least the next 5 years as the Madison population continues to grow.
