In the midst of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, opportunities to increase the skilled healthcare workforce are particularly critical.

In order to support improved health outcomes for Los Angeles residents, DHS will partner with FUSE Corps to manage the onboarding of the BSN program and additional allied health programs at CONAH.
