In preparation for the release of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) from HHS/HRSA/Bureau of Health Workforce, anticipated in early January 2017, and in response to requests at the recent NAO Conference, a working group is developing a series of webinars that will address the three focus areas: distribution, diversity and practice transformation. The first webinar will be held on Monday, August 8, 2016 at 2pm EST. It will be a review of the conversations between Dr. Padilla and NAO leadership, NAO's response to that conversation, HRSA's response, and Dr. Padilla's presentation on Thursday, June 30th during the NAO Conference. This will be a review for those who attended the conference, but we know many directors would like to he http://ow.ly/kBQG302SO2D
