Capacity Building


The Association grows the capacity of community health centers to serve more patients with workforce development and apprenticeship programs. We help community health centers recruit and retain skilled staff with trainings and connections through educational partnerships.

The Association provides training and technical assistance to enable community health centers to deliver effective, evidence-based health care to our patients. Our offerings include one-on-one coaching, group trainings, connection to industry experts and resources, and facilitated peer discussions.
