Public health workforce resources shared at APHA 2022 conference
A number of resources to support and enhance the public health workforce were shared at the recent American Public Health Association conference:
Health home care managers make a difference
A recent data review by Greater Rochester Health Home Network (GRHHN), an affiliate of FLPPS, and Lead Health Homes across New York state demonstrates their impact on the health and well-being of the individuals they serve across NYS.
The infographics above illustrate the significant impact that the GRHHN network of care managers have by connecting individuals to primary care and assisting individuals who were homeless to secure, safe, and stable housing.
These outcomes are critical to addressing health inequities within the Finger Lakes region and ensuring access to health care services.

A recording is now available for a recent webinar hosted by the Health and Human Services/Administration for Children and Families entitled Promising Practices: A Discussion on Human Services Workforce.
