Atlanta,GA (PRWEB) September 28, 2004
Diversity HealthWorks (http://www.diversityhealthworks.com), a first of its kind healthcare career portal dedicated to diversity in the healthcare workforce launched today. In addition to its job board services Diversity HealthWorks will be hosting a series of career forum events that bring together the workforce, health plans, and employers to highlight how diversity and disparities in healthcare affect their bottom line.
As an emerging initiative, the Diversity HealthWorks' Workforce Forum Series serves to provide action-oriented information about healthcare diversity, to look at strategies for addressing gaps, and to expand leadership capacity. For healthcare professionals, the goal is to connect individuals with companies that are looking to hire diverse talent in healthcare from consulting to nursing and biotechnology to medical billing and coding.
The Southeast stop of the Workforce Forum series will be held at the Georgia International Conference Center on February 16, 2005 in Atlanta, GA. The event will start with a seminar entitled, The Business Case for Diversity in Healthcare and will conclude with a career fair and career development workshops in the afternoon.
"It is absolutely imperative that organizations raise awareness about the human and economic repercussions of health disparities that exist among today's increasingly diverse workforce," said Amri Johnson of WellSolve Health Research Network, the parent company of Diversity HealthWorks. "Participating in the Career Forum Series is an outstanding way to learn the effects and find solutions to addressing diversity where health is concerned within both healthcare and non-healthcare companies."
Sponsorship opportunities are available for the Diversity HealthWorks Career Forum Series event in February, and employers are encouraged to visit http://www.diversityhealthworks.com for more details. Additional resources and facts about healthcare disparities, workforce diversity, information about future locations of the Career Forum Series, and Diversity HealthWorks' job board are also featured on the web site.
Diversity HealthWorks is a wholly owned subsidiary of WellSolve Health Research Network. It was established in 2004 as a one-stop destination for employers and job seekers alike to find action-oriented information, programs, and resources dedicated and related to diversity in the healthcare workforce.
