Our healthcare system today faces many great challenges that include: a rapidly aging population; increases in chronic illness and mental health needs; and the spread of global disease and infection. All of these healthcare challenges are expected to grow over the next decade and beyond.

Also watch: 
Darlene Curley, CEO of the Jonas Family Fund and Executive Director of the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare, speaking on the role that philanthropy can play in ensuring America’s healthcare workforce is prepared for the rising demand for healthcare services.

At the same time demand for healthcare services is increasing on a national and global scale, there is a shortage of trained providers and an uneven workforce distribution among our communities. We also are facing decreasing financial resources for training and education of healthcare workers at all levels.  

It is essential for philanthropy to be part of the solution to address these challenges.
