Indiana University Health Director-Mosaic Center for Work, Life and Learning in Indianapolis, Indiana
The Mosaic Center for Work, Life, and Learning is a workforce development project that will help Indianapolis youth and adults navigate a path to and across healthcare careers, clinical and nonclinical as well as other careers, and implementation of the 5 year strategy to provide services is just beginning.
