Supporting Providers of Color in the Pediatric Workforce: Practices to Diversify the Workforce and Improve Retention
Thursday, January 19, 2023
12:00 pm – 1:30 pm ET
The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) is offering this free webinar on Supporting Providers of Color in the Pediatric Workforce. This webinar is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
When health care professionals reflect the communities they serve, it leads to greater health equity, enhanced patient care, and improved health outcomes. The current pediatric workforce, however, lacks racial and ethnic diversity. The field is also experiencing staff shortages as well as geographic maldistribution in inner city and rural communities, which are projected to worsen in the years to come. These workforce shortages have negative impacts on providers in the workforce and on our youngest patients across the nation, especially children of color.
This webinar will explore innovations in recruitment, training, and retention that can lead to a more representative and supported pediatric workforce. It will also discuss anti-racist training opportunities for pediatric staff and residents to better serve children most impacted by structural racism. The webinar includes speakers from pediatric sites engaged in Accelerating Child Health Transformation, a national initiative led by the Center for Health Care Strategies with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Health care providers, researchers, and organizations, patients and patient advocates, and other interested stakeholders are invited to join this 90-minute event.

The domains and items of SMART, as well as its application process, will be outlined. Presenters will also provide lessons from on-the-ground applications of SMART in diverse community mental health settings.
