IARHC Health Equity Training Series: Iowa Healthcare Workforce Changes with Amy Campbell
September 22, 2022
The 2022 Iowa General Assembly focused a lot of attention on the workforce challenges facing healthcare providers – particularly rural providers. As part of IARHC’s Health Equity Training Series, plan to join as we host Amy Campbell of the Advocacy Cooperative as she provides an overview of workforce and other healthcare legislation passed and signed into law this year.
With so much workforce legislation, this webinar may be of interest to your Human Resources staff and others tasked with understanding loan repayment programs, licensing requirements and other changes made.

Dementia is in the top five causes of death in Iowa; it devastates the patient, as well as their families and friends. There is no cure for dementia and the few treatments that are available only work for a few months. However, it is estimated that 40% of all dementias can be prevented and that an individual can reduce their risk of getting dementia by up to 70%.
Dr. Patricia Quinlisk gives an overview of dementia, its risk factors, and explain how dementia prevention works. This presentation is ideal for clinical providers, managers, and administrators.
