Resource Summary: NACHC has developed two resources – an article and companion video – related to workforce for health center boards.
The article provides tips that a board can consider in partnership with the CEO to help address workforce challenges and opportunities through board-level functions, including strategic planning, budget approval, policy approval, and other forms of oversight and board development.
A companion video provides a summary of the article. Boards may find it helpful to watch the companion video to generate discussion about the board’s role related to workforce challenges and opportunities.
