. The Leadership Council
comprised of high-level health industry leaders serves as the steering committee that directs the initiative. The Council develops recommendations for statewide policy that will facilitate a sufficient supply of highly-skilled talent to meet the demand of Florida’s current and future healthcare workforce needs. Assisting the Leadership Council, the State and Professional Advisory Groups serve as a resource for information and data essential to enable healthcare workforce policy and strategy development. At the local level, Regional Councils provide information specific to Florida’s unique cultures that exist within each region.
