Why: Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the health workforce in the U.S. and North Carolina was experiencing rapid change in payment models, increased consolidation, and a growing focus on social drivers of health. The pandemic has accelerated these forces, adding acute stress among providers, growing behavioral health needs, and virtual models of care to an already strained system. North Carolina is a leader in health innovation; this event will bring together practitioners, researchers, lawmakers, and community stakeholders to share ideas and move sustainable workforce solutions forward.
